Kellogg Community College's Nights and Weekends Part-Time Nursing Program was created to provide a more flexible option for students with busy schedules interested in pursuing a degree in Nursing. The new program will start in the fall and will have a scheudle requiring just one weeknight of classes each week with clinical experiences offered on Saturdays. After 3 semesters, students will earn a Practical Nursing certificate and can take the NCLEX-PN exam. The full program is 7 semesters and it results in an Associate in Applied Science in Nursing degree allowing graduates to take the NCLEX-RN to become an RN.
