Nursing Technology
 

Associate Degree Nursing

The Program consists of a specially designed 2 year (4 semester, 1 summer term) undergraduate curriculum and prepares students to provide direct nursing care to clients in structured health-care settings where supervision and guidance are available by a registered nurse prepared minimally at the Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing level.

The Nursing Program is an integral part of the University. The Nursing Faculty believe that the best preparation for a career in nursing includes not only the study of nursing and the sciences, but a broad liberal arts education as well. This combination promotes the development of the student both as a nurse and as a member of society.

Nursing students have the opportunity to participate in general education classes on campus with students majoring in other fields of study. Classroom learning and library work take place on the University campus.

While the Nursing Program is designed to be completed in 2 years on a full-time basis, many students may choose to take more time for a variety of reasons. Those students who wish to progress in school at a slower pace may do so by electing to complete some or all of the general education course requirements prior to applying for admission and being admitted into the Nursing Program. A nursing faculty member is responsible for advising individuals interested in the Nursing Program and will clarify the process which is required for possible acceptance into the Program. Enrollment in University courses neither implies nor guarantees a student eventual acceptance into the Nursing Program.

Once a student is admitted into the Nursing Program, however, all general education courses and nursing courses must be taken in sequence and be successfully completed prior to enrolling in the next semester. Continuation in the Nursing Program requires a grade of "C" or better for all required nursing and science courses and a "satisfactory" designation for the clinical experience in nursing courses where this is a requirement.

Upon successful completion of the Nursing Program, the graduate is awarded the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing Technology [AAS Degree]. Nursing students must complete all degree requirements within five (5) years of their semester of initial enrollment in the Program.
