The My Academic Plan (MAP) serves as a guideline to graduate in one semester. The Key Milestones/Prerequisites listed for each semester highlight significant achievements that must be completed in the degree track. Students who do not follow the semester plan and/or who do not complete identified milestones may jeopardize their financial aid (if applicable) and/or delay graduation. Please refer to the Northark catalog or advisor for any changes or modifications which may have occurred after the publication of this document. This MAP is appropriate for students who are seeking the EMT, or Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A) Program. It also prepares students for entry into the PN Program and the Paramedic Technical Certificate Program (not Associate of Applied Science).
