Statewide, Concept-based, Common Nursing Curriculum    

In response to the challenges faced by nursing education providers across the nation, a group of nurse educators in New Mexico developed a statewide curriculum plan for educating registered nurses in New Mexico. This group is known as the New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC).  New Mexico Junior College (NMJC) Nursing Program and University of New Mexico (UNM) College of Nursing are members of this consortium.  The directors and faculty of both programs were actively involved in the development of the statewide, concept-based, curriculum plan.  NMJC Nursing Program is proud to be the first rural community college to implement the new statewide curriculum in the fall semester of 2014.  The new curriculum was designed to more efficiently manage the growing healthcare knowledge base, allow for seamless transfer of coursework among New Mexico nursing schools.

NOTICE August 1, 2018: The NMJC Nursing Program admitted the last cohort of BSN dual degree students in fall 2018. The program will continue to teach out the cohorts admitted in fall of 2017 and 2018. Beginning fall 2019, the program will only admit students to the ADN option
