* Prescribed support courses which may be taken prior to entering the nursing program. Once in the nursing program, courses must be taken in the identified sequence and successfully completed with a C or higher grade for a student to progress in the program.
** Anatomy and Physiology I and II must be completed within five years of beginning the program. Students enrolling in Anatomy and Physiology I or II should plan on taking both semesters of the sequence at NIACC or the same college.
NOTE: A current “Healthcare Provider (CPR) Certification” offered by the American Heart Association is required. The current certification/renewal needs to be completed prior to Nursing I or any reentry into the program. A yearly TB test is also required prior to Nursing I or any reentry into the program. Students must be current with these requirements or will not be
allowed in the clinical area.

- whose licensure is currently suspended, surrendered or revoked in any United States jurisdiction;
- whose license/registration is currently suspended, surrendered or revoked in another country due to disciplinary action.
