Why Study Nursing?
Registered nurses (RNs) provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients and their family members. The RCC Nursing program prepares students for a career as a Registered Nurse. Students complete required nursing course work as well as the general education courses required for students who want to continue their education at a four-year institution. The RCC pass rate for the NCLEX licensing, which makes graduates into Registered Nurses (RNs), is significantly higher than the New York State average.The nursing program is accredited by Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Rd., NE Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326.
