As the field of nursing continues to advance and evolve, creating pathways for nurses and nursing students to advance their education and career opportunities will play a key role in the delivery of health care in New Hampshire. Community College nursing students and graduates of CCSNH nursing programs will have a seamless, integrated pathway to progress from an associate degree in nursing through to a master’s degree thanks to a groundbreaking partnership with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU).

How can high school students, and their families, save thousands from the cost of a college education?  By taking NH community college courses in their high schools, for dual HS and college credit.  Students who take advantage of Running Start can begin college with a semester or more of coursework already completed, saving money and shortening the time it takes to earn a degree.
