How does it work?

Once Students are enrolled in the 2-year Nursing program, they attend class as a cohort at a local facility (not individually, but as a group), and “ZOOM” to the main section of class together. They have the presence of a BSN or higher educated nurse facilitator that works in collaboration with the EMCC Nursing Faculty. Often the same facilitator is the clinical instructor, with most of the required clinical experiences being held local to the cohort- in your local Northern Light Health location.

Eastern Maine Community College’s Nursing program has been ranked #1 in Maine for several years in a row due to the high NCLEX pass rate and job placement.

How do you begin?

Apply for the Career Studies AAS program for the Fall 2024 semester and choose Nursing as your desired pathway. Once enrolled in the pathway, you will complete two semesters in the Career Studies program. Prior to December 30, 2024, you may request to change your program to Nursing with your advisor.
