RN Achievement Program Overview
The RN Achievement Program offers a special opportunity at CCAC. With the help of a federal grant, students can ensure their success by earning an associate’s degree in Nursing. Students will participate in carefully designed cohort courses that will complement the required nurse course offerings. Cohort participants will have access to study groups, individual tutoring and scholarships.
CCAC case managers offer individual assistance in developing and implementing educational goals. Access to the assistance and counseling of development specialists is also available. These professionals work with each student, providing personalized assistance to help students launch careers in nursing.
