The schools said that students who plan to enroll in the program should complete general education courses at CCC and then apply to both UAH and CCC nursing programs. Once accepted to both programs, students will complete their last five semesters at both institutions.

“The unique thing about this program is that we use one curriculum,” said  Calhoun Nursing Department Chair Lynn Hogan. “The faculty at Calhoun and UAH are working very closely to ensure the learning process is seamless and that students won’t have any issues when they transition to UAH to complete their final semesters.”
