Details

The Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) is a partnership between select community colleges and Arizona State University which provides nursing students the opportunity to complete both their associate degree in nursing through their community college and their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) through ASU simultaneously. CEP nursing students take nursing coursework in-person at their community college and 100% online through ASU. This program offers a time-efficient and cost-effective pathway to the BSN while gaining your associate degree in nursing.

ASU CEP courses build on the knowledge and skills acquired in the associate degree in nursing program and includes research, evidence-based practice, community and global public health, and leadership and management. Coursework includes a variety of assignments and practical activities designed to build skills in oral and written communication, teamwork and interprofessionalism, and clinical reasoning and problem solving. Our BSN graduates are engaged, innovative professionals who utilize critical thinking, effective communication and client advocacy to facilitate positive change.

(Note: The EAC CEP program is offered in a hybrid format on-campus at Eastern Arizona College’s Thatcher campus, Maricopa Community College District, Northland Pioneer College, Pima Community College, Yavapai College.
