Students will participate in planned clinical and laboratory experiences that will complement classroom learning and will stress health prevention and promotion as well as disease processes.The Orlando campus Associate of Science in Nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC - www.nlnac.org 404-975-5000).
BSN Program Details
With more than 2.5 million jobs, registered nursing today constitutes the largest healthcare occupation. The demand for more nurses is due to two major factors:
-The aging population will result in more patients, and a larger number of nurses will be retiring from the workplace
-New medical procedures will require greater nursing involvement
Today, registered nurses do more than ever before. Their responsibilities include recording patient health histories and symptoms, helping perform diagnostic tests and analyzing results, operating medical equipment, administering treatments and medications, and assisting with patient follow-up and rehabilitation.
Entry-level nursing positions require at least an associate degree. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree however, provides more career opportunities as well as the option to advance into graduate programs to pursue advanced practice, management, and nursing faculty positions. Nurses at all levels have a broad array of career opportunities available in virtually every type of healthcare facility including primary care offices, clinics, hospitals, special care units, nursing homes, health departments, occupational health programs, school health services, mental health centers, home health, hospices, assisted living centers, research labs and more.
