Union, Mo - The first year pre-licensure nursing students at East Central College’s Union campus recently started their clinical rotation.

ECC’s Associate Degree Nursing programs include supervised practicum in a variety of health care agencies every semester, giving students the opportunity to practice skills and apply knowledge learned in the classroom.

These students will graduate in May of 2013 with an Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing. They will then be eligible to apply to write the NCLEX-RN Exam for licensure as registered nurses.

In both Union and Rolla, ECC offers the traditional pre-licensure nursing programs as well as LPN to RN bridge programs for licensed practical nurses interested in becoming registered nurses.

The nursing programs at both locations are fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
