Traditional college isn't for everyone. Maybe you want a faster path from the classroom to the emergency room. Maybe you want your training closer to the source. Whatever the reason, a Nursing Diploma may be the perfect course for you.
· By getting one's education directly at a hospital, you may have more hands-on clinical time than students studying in a classroom.
· Like associate degrees, many diploma programs can also be completed in 2-3 years; with some programs, that time is even shorter.
But What Will I Learn With a Nursing Diploma?
Much like an Associate of Science in Nursing, a diploma dispenses with the liberal art supplements found in an Associate of Arts degree, instead focusing on applied sciences and hands-on technical study. Over the course of your studies, you will encounter a variety of skills and subjects including:
· Anatomy and Physiology
· Safety and Infection Control
· Disease Detection and Prevention
· Administering of Medication
· Patient-Professional Communication
· Ethics and Legal Issues in Health Care
Upon graduating, your diploma will qualify you to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), which grants licensure to practice as a Registered Nurse.
What Kind of Career Can I Find?
Since diploma programs are offered directly through hospitals, most graduates can look forward to hiring by those same hospitals after passing the NCLEX exam. Diploma graduates with licenses can work as registered nurses, providing immediate and everyday care to patients.
If at any time you decide that you'd like to move up in the health care world, many degree completion programs exist to bridge the way from a diploma to a BSN degree.
