About this Program

The AAS Degree option in Practical Nursing is designed for those who would like to fulfill some of the general education requirements to pursue a professional nursing degree or other advanced degree through HTC. The diploma is required to take the licensure exam and for entry into practice; therefore this is an option in addition to the diploma. This may be taken either at the same time or after graduating with the diploma. Students are encouraged to contact the program to which they wish to transfer for specific information about their requirements to ensure the student selects the appropriate courses.
