Nursing (ADN & AAS)

What is A Nursing (ADN & AAS) Degree?

Simply put, nurses treat the sick and injured.  In today’s world, using an evidence-based approach is widely accepted, with nurses being trained to use documented research results, best practices, and patient desires to decide on the best treatment strategies.

To become a nurse you will need to earn an RN and pass the licensure exam.  Earning the Associate’s degree in Nursing (ADN) for many is the fastest way to be able to work as a Registered Nurse.  In addition to general education requirements, the ADN degree courses will include studying things like anatomy and physiology, biochemistry microbiology, nutrition, and nursing theory and practice.  You may also take a psychology course in human development.
