Students must have a current Arizona registered nursing license or a license from one of the states in the nursing compact at the time they enter the program. Students from a non-compact state will have to obtain licensure in Arizona. During the didactic year, students will apply for and secure licenses for all states required for rotations including non-compact states. Additional state nursing licenses costs are the responsibility of the student. ACLS and PALS certification are required for clinical rotations. Costs for ACLS and PALS are the responsibility of the student.
