Nursing Program Revision

The College has received notification that the Nursing A. A. S. (HEGIS 5208.10) program revision has been re-registered by New York State Education Department (NYSED). Changes made with this revision are as follows:

Program Requirement - Require MTH 160 Statistics I. A higher level of mathematics is needed for researching evidence based practice. MTH160 provides a competency needed by nurses to understand evidence based research findings and to engage in evidence based decision making. Also MTH 160 will allow for meeting General Education requirements and achieving technological literacy.

Admission Requirement - Mathematics requirement raised so that student will have the prerequisite for MTH 160.

Add Values and Ethics designation to NUR 210 - MCC General Education transition.

Credit Hours - From 65 to 64 as a result of the change to the MTH requirement.
