ADN Program Details
Nursing is one of the most important and exciting professions in healthcare today. Nurses care for individuals, families and the community by providing care, treatment, counseling and health education to ill or injured people. They also provide education to promote health and prevent injury and illness. Nurses' special knowledge and skills are used to monitor patient conditions, give them medications and treatments prescribed by a physician and provide education so that patients can care for themselves at home. Nurses consider the emotional and mental aspects of health as well as the physical aspects. They also have the important role of directing and supervising nursing support personnel.
Nurses may work in a specialty area such as intensive care, surgery, obstetrics or with special populations such as children or the elderly. Nurses also work in a variety of settings such as hospitals, physician offices, community clinics, nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities. Nursing offers many career opportunities that are as exciting as they are rewarding. When you graduate from Carolinas College of Health Sciences, you are an experienced generalist.
