Non-Traditional 3-Year Track

The Career Ladder Nursing Program 3-Year Track within Lansing Community College's Nursing Department will enable the nontraditional student to pursue a terminal degree (Associate Degree in Applied Science) in nursing at a slower pace. This track is an innovative community initiative which addresses the critical shortage of registered nurses our community, state, and nation faces.

Some of the courses are offered in a hybrid format, meaning that students will be required to meet face-to-face with their instructor, and also complete coursework online.  For hybrid learning information click here.

Thirty-two students will be admitted each fall semester. Coursework will consist of theory, labs and clinical rotations. The program will be eight consecutive semesters in length; sixteen weeks during the fall and spring, and ten weeks in the summer.

The successful graduate will be eligible to write the NCLEX-PN Exam to become a Licensed Practical Nurse and the NCLEX-RN Exam to become a Registered Nurse with licensure in the State of Michigan.
