The Nursing program at Central Maine is designed as a multiple entry/exit curriculum, preparing individuals at both the Practical Nurse and the Registered Nurse levels. Year one of the curriculum serves a dual purpose: by itself it meets the educational criteria for practical nursing; it also serves as the first year of the two year Associate in Science (RN) degree program.
Students may enroll in the RN program at the Auburn campus or at the CMCC/Lincoln County Healthcare Center in Damariscotta.**
Graduates of either level are prepared to work in structured health care settings such as hospitals and extended care facilities, to pursue careers in medical/surgical, obstetrical, pediatric, geriatric, or psychiatric nursing. Graduates earning an associate degree may transfer into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at the University of Southern Maine.
