Carroll offers Nursing programs that allow students to enroll in degree and certificate programs. There is a selective admission process.
Nursing offers a variety of options beginning with the two basic fields of licensed practical nurse (LPN) and registered nurse (RN).
Registered Nurses require specialized knowledge, judgment and skills to practice nursing. Licensed Practical Nurses work with registered nurses and physicians in providing basic bedside care. Maintaining health and preventing illness is the goal of all nursing care.
Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses function within the scope of practice as outlined in the Maryland Nurse Practice Act. The clinical portion of the associate degree nursing program can be completed in four terms. The practical nursing certificate program is completed in the fall and spring terms and an additional summer term. You may exit the nursing program as a practical nurse and re-enter into the associate degree nursing program within two years from the date of practical nursing program completion. After completion of the associate of science degree, graduates are eligible to take the examination for registered nurse licensure.
The Maryland Board of Nursing may deny a license to any applicant who has been convicted of or pleads guilty or nolo contendere to a felony or to a crime involving moral turpitude, whether or not any appeal or other proceeding is pending to have the conviction or plea set aside.

RN to B.S.N.
After completion of the associate degree program, an RN may transfer to a baccalaureate degree (B.S.N.) program at any university offering B.S.N. degrees. Regardless of the clinical program chosen, there are certain core courses common to all programs and those can be completed at Carroll Community College. Carroll Community College participates in the Maryland Nursing Articulation Model; this includes all Maryland universities.
