Summary:
In the fall of 1965, IRJC offers a Nursing Degree program comprised of 65-70 credit hours. The Associate's Degree (which can be completed in two years) will have a curriculum that is split evenly between general education courses and nursing courses. Classes will not only be taught on campus, but may also take place at the Fort Pierce Memorial Hospital. The IRSC Nursing program was inaugurated in 1965, in the midst of the Vietnam War. Since women were often associated with nursing careers, this gave them the opportunity to obtain an education and receive a college degree.
