Nursing Continuing Education

Our program is the largest of its kind in the state of Arizona, offering an exciting and comprehensive variety of classes for credit, ranging from 1 day workshops to full semester courses. Comprehensive program goals include:

  • designing courses to educate students in developing patient management skills above the entry-level for practicing healthcare professionals (both advanced and refresher courses)
  • providing entry-level training courses to students who wish to enter the healthcare field as Patient Care Technicians and the Nurse Assistants
  • partnering with healthcare agencies to provide diverse learning experiences to expand the student's scope and depth of knowledge
  • collaborating with healthcare agencies to identify the evolving needs of the community
  • planning and implementing programs of study

Additionally, NCE offers refresher classes during the fall and spring semesters for RNs and LPNs who have not practiced nursing for over 5 years, or who have inactive licenses. These classes comply with the requirements of the Arizona State Board of Nursing, including:

  • 60 hours of theory
  • 45 hours of pharmacology
  • 180 hours of clinical study.
