Nursing Associate's Degrees

Are you eager to get into the working world? An associate degree in nursing is the fastest way to get there. Within two years of education, you can gain the skills you need to become a Registered Nurse (RN).

·        A two-year degree means less time in a classroom and more time in the field.

·        Completing a degree proves your dedication and knowledge to future employers.

·        Formally completing an associates degree provides you with a stepping stone to a bachelors degree or masters degree.

But What Will I Learn With an Associates Degree?

That depends on that degree track you decide to take – an Associate of Science degree is more straightforward, focusing solely on technical courses, whereas an Associate of Arts degree often entails a more well-rounded curriculum including humanities courses. Nevertheless, all nursing students pursuing an Associates degree will learn skills such as:
 
·        Anatomy and Physiology

·        Safety and Infection Control

·        Disease Detection and Prevention

·        Administering of Medication

·        Patient-Professional Communication

·        Ethics and Legal Issues in Health Care

Furthermore, your nursing degree will provide adequate training for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), which grants licensure as a registered nurse.

What Kind of Career Can I Find?

With an Associate's Degree in Nursing, you can transition straight from college to a career. The degree qualifies students to take the NCLEX-RN exam and earn a license to practice as an RN. If, at any point, you decide to further your college education, already having an associate's degree can make things much simpler—many RN to BSN nursing programs exist which bridge the gap to a Bachelors degree in just two years.
