The Associate Degree Nursing Program prepares men and women for the practice of registered nursing to provide direct client care across the life span. The practice of the associate degree nurse is primarily directed toward clients who have health needs and require assistance to maintain or restore their optimum state of health, or support to die with dignity. The associate degree nurse is prepared to address acute and chronic health care needs, and common well-defined health care problems in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and certain community health agencies.
