Become a Nurse

NMNEC has created a common nursing curriculum throughout the state that allows you to choose one of three options to earn your undergraduate nursing degree:

  1. BSN (baccalaureate of science in nursing) at a university
  2. ADN (associate degree in nursing) at a community college
  3. Co-enrolled ADN – BSN program at a community college in partnership with a university

All students seeking admission to a NMNEC program must meet requirements for admission to the home institution (community college or university) to which they are applying. Community college students seeking the co-enrolled ADN – BSN degree option must meet university admission requirements and BSN prerequisites of the partnering university.
