The Associate Degree in Nursing leads to becoming a Registered Nurse.
Registered Nurses provide care to individuals in an effort to attain, restore and maintain health. To do that, they must apply critical thinking skills, clinical competence, accountability, adaptability and a commitment to the value of caring. The goal of the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program is to prepare a Registered Nurse who is a provider of care, a manager of care, and a member of the profession. ADN students receive preparation to provide care for patients across the lifespan.
