Nursing Program

Why is our program the one for you?

100% of SIC’s Practical Nursing program students and Associate Degree Nursing program students passed their licensure exams the first time upon graduation in 2018! Those who plan to continue their education and earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing leave fully prepared to take that next step.


This kind of success can only be attributed to the outstanding dedication of SIC’s nursing instructors to prepare students for success. At SIC, you will find that our faculty spends countless hours both inside and outside the classroom to serve as professor-mentors, not just teachers.

You will find that our programs provide concentrations in specialty areas like pediatrics and obstetrics. In addition to classroom instruction and in-depth training, students are exposed to a wide variety of clinical settings and patient populations within the community as part of their curriculum.

Isabel and Rachel tell us why they chose SIC and the nursing profession:

"My favorite thing about SIC is that everyone is very helpful, and everyone is very supportive, and I feel like I've learned a lot in a short amount of time."  ~Nursing Student Isobel Crabb
"I chose SIC because I've heard it's a very good program because of the pass rates." ~Nursing Student Rachel Henson

More nurses are needed.

Today, more nurses are retiring than are entering the nursing field, so it is a great time to become a nurse. More than a 12% increase in the number of registered nurses is expected between 2018 and 2028. (Source:

"I remember telling my mom when I was a little girl that I wanted to help people when they were sick.  SIC's caring staff gave me the start I needed, and even helped me discover my next career step, which turned out to be online education for my master's degree in nursing."
