The nursing profession positively affects the delivery of health care in a variety of settings. The mission of the Associate degree with a concentration in Pre-Nursing curriculum is to prepare students for further studies that will result in obtaining either a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). Pre-nursing studies integrate theory and research-based knowledge from the arts, humanities and sciences to develop a foundation for good nursing practice. Additionally, students will acquire written, spoken, and technological skills to communicate effectively in the work place.

Several nursing programs are offered through area colleges and universities. Requirements vary depending on the nursing program institution and can change from one year to the next. Students planning to apply and transfer to certified nursing programs should consult with their faculty advisor for further information concerning the specific requirements.
