Associate In Nursing Programs
If you want to become a Registered Nurse (RN), you can enter the profession with an associate’s degree. A nursing associate’s degree is often referred to as an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing, or an ADN (Associate Degree in Nursing). This program prepares students to take the licensure examination for Registered Professional Nurses (RN) and often takes two years to complete.
Students study how to assess patients’ needs as well as how to make judgments in planning and implementing appropriate nursing care. Clinical experiences are often required and are conducted on-site at a variety of hospitals during the day, evenings, or weekends.
There are plenty of online, campus, and hybrid programs available for those interested in pursuing an associate’s degree in medical assisting. Use the links below to navigate our list of degrees.
