About this course
The registered nurse education (AS) program provides students with the opportunity to learn through theory and practical applications how to be professional nurse leaders in caring for patients, families, and communities. Students prepare for a career in nursing through lecture, laboratory, and clinical experiences. Additionally, the nursing program offered at Ameritech College of Healthcare utilizes a complex human patient simulator to enhance clinical and critical thinking skills. Students also take general education courses that supplement and enhance the nursing courses.
Ameritech College of Healthcare has been granted accreditation from the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN, formerly NLNAC).
