Community College of Rhode Island

Traveling North on Louisquisset Pike, you’ll see Community College of Rhode Island on your left just a little further after crossing Chase Lane.  The Nursing program at Community College of Rhode Island is a bi-level course (employing the career ladder concept) in which students can study for 2 semesters and exit to write their NCLEX-PN exams for Practical Nurses.  In case the students continue with their studies, they have to complete 2 more semesters to be eligible for taking the NCLEX-RN exams for Registered Nurses.  Both the PN and RN programs are accredited by the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).  Once accepted into the course the students must attend a mandatory orientation program conducted by the Nursing Department.
