Associate Degree Nursing

Academic Map

The two-year Associate Degree in Nursing program, housed at the Main Campus in Moberly, provides a combination of subject matter and clinical experiences designed to prepare a person to provide high-quality, safe, effective, patient-centered care to individuals or groups of individuals with well-defined health problems.

Upon successful completion of the program, the student is eligible to apply to take the National Council of Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses. Missouri Nursing Practice Act, Section 335.006, provides additional criteria for eligibility to apply for licensure to practice nursing. Successful completion of the program does not guarantee eligibility to take the licensing exam. Satisfactory performance on the examination will qualify the student for licensure as a registered nurse.

The program is fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is approved by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Division of Career Education.

Associate of Applied Science - Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA)

 

Academic Map

The AAS in Occupational Therapy Assistant is a one-plus-one degree program which prepares students to practice as a certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA) after meeting certification and state licensure standards. Moberly Area Community College is one of five colleges in the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) currently selected to offer the program coordinated through the University of Missouri, School of Health Professions. MACC will offer and enroll students in the general education coursework; sophomore level (professional level) coursework will be taught to MACC students at a classroom located on the MACC-Columbia campus. Interactive television and internet based technologies will also be readily utilized to convey course content. Through the combination of general education, professional level coursework, classroom and laboratory practice, and clinical fieldwork experiences, students will learn the profession of occupational therapy assistant. The Professional Year does not run on a traditional MACC academic cycle. Classes will begin the Monday after New Year's Day and will run through the end of the Fall Semester. Completion of professional year coursework takes one full calendar year.

Associate of Arts in Teaching


All Missouri community colleges offer the same Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree option for students who want to transfer to a 4-year college or university to pursue a bachelor's degree in teacher education. Most public and private 4-year colleges and universities have agreed to articulate the AAT with their bachelor's degree programs.

The AAT curriculum is based on MO-Step standards and mid-preparation benchmarks approved by the Missouri Department
of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This common curriculum ensures that you will meet the competencies identified by DESE at the completion of the second year of postsecondary education.

For updated information regarding the AAT degree, please contact Robert Williams, Teacher Education Program Coordinator, at ext. 11630.

Students are strongly encouraged to consult an advisor and the transfer institution prior to enrolling in courses to ensure that all selected courses will transfer.
