Many start by getting their Nursing Assistant certificate before moving on to their two-year nursing diploma (to become an LPN) or associate degree (to become an RN). Savvy students earn their associate degree, take (and pass) the RN exam, and then work in the field while pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

USDE Licensure Disclosure
Successful completion of the Practical Nursing (PN) or Associates of Science in Nursing (ASN) programs at South Central College will meet the requirements for licensure in the State of Minnesota. The pdfU.S. Dept. of Education requirement fo ASN and PN PDF(125.90 KB) helps you find information regarding which state licensure requirements are met in states outside of Minnesota. This data was collected in August of 2020 with steadfast attempts for accuracy, however as programs and state requirements change, this should not be considered the definitive resource. South Central College highly recommends that you contact the appropriate state licensing board in the state or locality in which you intend to practice or be employed to determine whether the program you are considering will meet that state’s licensing requirements. Information about specific state requirements for licensure can be located through the board of nursing for each state.
