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:

The demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years or more as our aging population grows and more individuals have access to health insurance. As a result of this increased demand, more nurses will be needed to care for these patients in offices of physicians, clinics, and other ambulatory care settings and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2014 to 2024.
