TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - With many hospitals facing a shortage of qualified nurses, Pima Community College says it is helping through a partnership with Northern Arizona University.

Students who are pursuing an associate degree in nursing at PCC can simultaneously earn a bachelor of science in nursing from NAU.

The new program begins this semester.  PCC says it enables students in Tucson to take NAU courses online or in a hybrid format as they work to fulfill the program's 120-credit requirement.

The program is designed to be completed in five semesters and is being offered through the PCC's West Campus Nursing Department.  You can learn more about it through PCC's Concurrent Enrollment Program brochure.
