Glendale Community College
The Maricopa Community College District Nursing Program (MCCDNP) is offered at nine Maricopa Community Colleges. The campus at Glendale Community College offers the Nursing Associate in Applied Science (AAS). Different course schedules are offered throughout the various campus with options for full-time, accelerated, part-time, and online enrollment. Nursing degrees and certificate options throughout the district include:
- Nursing (AAS)
- Nurse Assisting (CCL)
- Practical Nursing (CCL)
- Students planning to earn their BSN and transfer to ASU may be able to enroll into the Maricopa-ASU Partnership Program (MAPP).
Clinical experiences are setup at inpatient and outpatient settings and the aim of the nursing program is to provide clinical experience within reasonable driving distance from the college you attend. During your clinical experience, nursing students work directly with patients, nurses, physicians, and other health care professionals. You will receive hands-on experience in all major specialty areas in community agencies, long-term care facilities, and hospitals.
Glendale Community College is accredited the ACEN, and GCC’s Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Nursing Program is approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing.
