Midlands Tech Courses | Columbia College Courses


Columbia College offers a 4 year campus based Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in collaboration with Midlands Technical College.

Students will be jointly enrolled at Columbia College and at Midlands Technical College and will also earn an Associate Degree in Nursing.  This enables them to become licensed RNs and even work (many hospitals provide tuition reimbursement!) while they complete the remainder of their BSN degree.

Essentially students spend their first year completing pre-requisites and general education courses, then begin their nursing and clinical training for the second and third year earning their Associate Degree in Nursing.  Their final year is spent completing upper level Nursing and leadership courses to earn their BSN degree.
