All students who successfully complete the RVC Nursing program earn an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN to earn the Registered Nurse (RN) credential. All our graduates are employable at all three local hospitals in Rockford, as well as other healthcare agencies. Once hired in, these hospital employers are expecting nurses to complete their Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN). To help facilitate an easy transition into a RN-BSN Completion Program, RVC Nursing has developed partnerships with five RN-BSN Completion Programs.
