Program Title

Nursing, Generic track, A.S.N.

Program Description

The Generic track of the nursing program is a common traditional pathway to becoming a Registered Nurse (RN). The program requires two semesters of pre-requisite courses that must be taken before the first nursing course. After these courses are completed, students enter the four-semester sequence of nursing courses.

The courses begin with the basics of nursing care and then progress in the following semesters to more complex issues including the latest technology used in patient care. Students learn in classroom settings as well as in small groups in campus laboratories where realistic automated patient manikins create a safe learning environment in which students are encouraged by an expert faculty to build skills and confidence. Students complete clinical rotations in area hospitals, all of which have excellent reputations for quality patient care.

Information

The Nursing (ASN) program requires 70 semester credit hours plus one PE activity course for a total of 71 semester credit hours.
