he Associate Degree Nursing program prepares graduates to provide and manage client care and to become members within the discipline of nursing. Intrinsic to the three roles of the nurse are the eight core components of nursing practice. The eight core components are: professional behaviors, nursing process, communication, clinical decision making, caring interventions, teaching/learning, collaboration, and managing care. These core components are introduced, developed, and built upon through the curriculum.
The Associate Degree Nursing curriculum is organized around a clearly defined conceptual framework and combines general education and nursing courses. The courses correlate classroom and clinical instruction in a variety of community agencies.
