Make the most of your time and effort as you move forward with your associate degree while in Excelsior's Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP). This plan provides you with an opportunity to earn your associate degree in nursing at American River College while completing degree requirements toward a Bachelor of Science in nursing with Excelsior's online degree program.

Working closely together, both colleges will guide you through the process. Once you graduate with an associate degree from American River College and become a Registered Professional Nurse, you may only need 25-30 credits to complete an Excelsior Bachelor of Science in nursing.
