Registered Nurse Program

Snow College RN program is a 1 plus 1 nursing program. Students will first receive a Practical Nursing Certificate. Students then enter the PN-RN program where they receive an Associate of Science in nursing which allows them to take the RN-NCLEX exam.

Acceptance into the PN-RN program is based off of a point system. You can find the application at RN Packet. We can accept up to 40 students; all 40 students are filled from the same application pool. Current Snow College LPN students will have the opportunity to transfer directly into the PN-RN program if all qualifications are met; an application is still required for those who are interested in transferring to ensure qualifications. Students must submit a PN-RN application by the March 1st deadline.

Classes will be held at the Snow College Richfield Campus and Ephraim Campus. Caring instructors teach concurrently by live instruction and video conferencing, allowing students from both campuses to participate in all lectures and discussions. Students are required to travel occasionally to meet as a group at one campus for labs and other activities.

Snow College’s RN program is fully accredited from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Inc. (ACEN).
