About this course
The Associate of Science Degree in Nursing education combines general education foundations and core theory which recognizes competencies both particular to and overlapping with differentiated levels of "nursing" practice. These competencies vary by level of practice, types of patients served, practice settings, and the complexity of skill sets. The educational components of the College’s nursing program of study will address the attainment of specific competencies within an identified level of nursing and an organizational framework for thinking. This curriculum provides the foundation for beginning professional nursing practice. Both basic general and nursing education courses expose the student to requisites for providing safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient care for confident and competent professional nursing practice within a culturally sensitive environment. This program is designed for full-time students to complete the program in 24 months.
