The two-year A.A.S. degree in nursing, located on the Portsmouth Campus, prepares students to sit for the National Council Licensure Exam - RN and work in a wide variety of settings, from acute care facilities to doctor’s offices. Admission to the nursing program is limited and certain prerequisites are required.
