The Registered Nursing program is operated with the approval of the Idaho Board of
Nursing and accredited by ACEN. The course of study is designed to provide you with
the essential knowledge and skills to function as a registered nurse. Classes
consist of both theory and hands-on supervised experience. The supervised clinical
experience is conducted at major health care facilities and agencies. Successful
completion of the program requirements earns an Associate of Applied Science degree
in nursing and makes the student eligible to sit for the Idaho national licensure
examination (NCLEX-RN) to become a licensed registered nurse.
Enrollment in the RN program is limited. Because of the number of applicants, completion of all admission requirements does not ensure acceptance into the program. Candidates for admission are selected from the pool of qualified applicants using a point-based process. CEI no longer requires students to complete a licensed practical nursing program as a prerequisite to enroll in its registered nursing program.
NOTICES: Applicants must now be a certified CNA to apply for the RN and LPN program.
