The NMNEC UNM-Taos/UNM Dual Degree Program

The NMNEC UNM-Taos/UNM Dual Degree program is a partnership with the UNM-Taos Branch Campus and the University of New Mexico College of Nursing (UNM) that allows students to obtain an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) concurrently. On BSN completion, students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing exam with the New Mexico State Board of Nursing.

This is a competitive application screening with UNM-Taos taking 8 students every two years starting in the fall and running five terms in duration.

Students are responsible for tuition and fees at both UNM-Taos and UNM, with financial aid and scholarships available through UNM, if eligible.
