Highly qualified faculty and administrative personnel are dedicated to preparing future nurses for a rewarding career in the ever-evolving field of health care.

Clinical experiences are provided in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings.

The Concurrent Enrollment Programs (CEP) allow students to pursue an AAS degree in nursing via the current MaricopaNursing program while providing an affordable, concurrent course of study that enables students to complete their BSN degree in approximately one semester after graduating with their AAS degree. A limited number of participants are selected from the pool of MaricopaNursing students who have met all Associate-Baccalaureate CEP identified eligibility requirements.
Program brochures and applications for all current CEPs are provided on the MaricopaNursing website.  Currently, Chandler-Gilbert Community College provides concurrent enrollment through Northern Arizona University (NAU), Arizona State University, Upper Iowa University, Franklin Pierce University, Ottawa University, and Grand Canyon University.
Please note — all applicants are required to register for and attend a CEP information session prior to applying to a CEP. If the student does not attend an information session and his/her name does not appear on a CEP information session roster, the student will not be eligible to submit an application for a CEP.
