Did you know you can receive a Bachelor’s of Nursing within one year of graduating from the associate degree nursing program at Contra Costa College? Through a unique partnership with University of Phoenix, students are dually enrolled in both schools’ programs and take a limited number of classes through UOP while attending CCC. After graduating from CCC, students take the rest of the required classes for a total of 33 units through UOP. 

This is an innovative and expedited way for students in an associate degree nursing program to receive a BSN and become employed. This partnership directly addresses the Institute of Medicine’s goal of 80% of nurses having a BSN by 2020.  Learn more about the transfer pathway here.
