*Students need permission from the Dean of Nursing and Allied Health Professions at HCC to register for these courses. These courses require the student to spend 33 hours/week in a clinical setting. Students must contact the Dean as soon as possible to ensure placement in the END Practicum.

**A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 70 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
