Nursing concepts and techniques, health assessment, pharmacology and nutrition
The Associate in Science in Nursing program is a combination of general education and professional courses including lecture, laboratory and clinical education components. Graduates of the program are prepared to function as entry–level practitioners and are qualified to take the National Council for Licensure Examination (NCLEX - RN) to become licensed as registered nurses (RN). Clinical rotations scheduled in area hospitals and other medical centers are part of the program, so students will graduate with experience as well as theoretical knowledge.
