The Concurrent Enrollment Associate-Baccalaureate Nursing Programs are offered through participating community colleges in the Maricopa Community College District. These programs are designed for qualified nursing students who are interested in earning their Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree while pursuing their Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing degree. Students with a previous bachelors degree may also earn their Master's of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree through Grand Canyon University while pursuing their Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing degree.
The Concurrent Enrollment Programs allow students to pursue an AAS degree in nursing via the current MaricopaNursing program while providing an affordable, concurrent course of study that enables students to complete their BSN degree in approximately one semester after graduating with their AAS degree. A limited number of participants are selected from the pool of MaricopaNursing students who have met all Associate-Baccalaureate CEP identified eligibility requirements.
Admission requirements, prerequisites, costs, and program options vary considerably, students are encouraged to review all available information to determine the best fit for their needs. MaricopaNursing provides a variety of options for students who want to learn more about CEP:
