AACC is pleased to offer this two-course continuing education program twice a year - once in the winter term and once in the fall. The first course (part 1) is a 97-hour theory course. The second combines clinical work with skills lab work. Both courses are approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing.
Students must register and pay for both courses at the same time. If you have already completed a licensed nurse refresher theory course at AACC or the College of Southern Maryland, but have not completed the licensed nurse refresher clinical portion, you can contact AACC to be put on a waiting list for the clinical. Be advised that this course seldom has openings. Sections are offered in fall and winter.

Toal Hours: 240
Upon successful completion of both courses, students earn their nursing certification as well as an AACC continuing education certificate. Once you successfully complete all the course requirements of the certificate program with a passing grade or higher, submit a Student Application for a Continuing Education Certificate.
Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 13% through 2027. The median salary of registered nurses is $74,000 per year.
