Fort Scott Community College Graduation Requirements

Nursing

Associate of Applied Science Graduates of the AAS program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination for state licensure. The nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) and is approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN). The program offers only courses for registered nursing and does not provide a practical nursing option. The AAS degree program prepares the graduate for beginning staff nurse positions in various healthcare settings. The graduate is prepared to deliver nursing care to individuals and groups within a structured setting and to work with other members of the healthcare team to promote health and wellness. The Kansas Articulation Agreement allows FSCC graduates to continue their studies at any of 12 colleges and universities in Kansas that offer the Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BSN). The nursing curriculum is designed to prepare students to meet the requirements for a career in nursing. The nursing curriculum is challenging. Theory, laboratory, and clinical practice are integrated into the nursing courses. Clinical practice is obtained at area hospitals, nursing homes, simulation lab, and other healthcare settings. An instructor to student ratio is maintained at no more than 1:10 per state guidelines. Students entering the program should anticipate taking courses in the order shown in the sequence of courses. Nursing courses build on the content of prior semesters. All nursing courses shown for a semester are required to be taken concurrently. General education courses must be completed prior to or concurrently with the nursing courses as listed. Students must complete the curriculum that is in place at the time they begin the nursing semesters or at the time they re-enter the nursing program. Courses not in the nursing curriculum, but recommended to supplement the nursing curriculum include: Medical Terminology, General Biology, Basic Chemistry, Sociology, or other courses that would meet BSN requirements. Students wishing to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing should consult with the program director for advisement on transfer courses.
