The schedule below shows how the requirements for the A.A.S. Nursing degree may be met in four semesters. This schedule is an example of one of many possible different schedules.
It is included here only as an illustration of the type of schedule that might be followed by a full-time student. Many students attending Finger Lakes Community College who have work and/or family obligations choose a different sequence of courses and take more than four semesters to fulfill the requirements for the A.A.S. Nursing degree. Similarly, students who find they need to take some additional course work to prepare them to do well in the types of courses included in the A.A.S. Nursing degree program may plan a schedule that takes more than four semesters to complete the degree. Students registering for a January or Summer Nursing Practicum or Summer Nursing Course must do so by established deadlines. All students should consult their Nursing advisor when they plan their schedule.
