Associate of Arts in Nursing Program

The education and training you need to become a Registered Nurse

Registered Nurses (RN) are the largest group among all the health care occupations. RNs evaluate patient’s health problems and needs and provide nursing care to ill, injured, convalescing, and/or disabled patients. Nurses record patient medical histories and symptoms and administer treatment and medications. They help perform diagnostic tests, analyze results, and may advise patients on health maintenance and disease prevention. Registered Nurses develop and apply nursing care plans and maintain medical records. They educate patients and the public about various medical conditions. They also assist with patient follow-up and rehabilitation and provide advice and emotional support to the patients’ family members.

Job Growth Outlook:

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. In addition, growth is also expected to be faster than average in outpatient care centers, where patients do not stay overnight, such as those which provide same-day chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and surgery.

As a result of this increased growth, and the need to replace workers who retire, overall job opportunities are expected to be good and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2016 to 2026.*
