The Nursing Program provides educational opportunities to qualified students utilizing a curriculum that is designed to prepare graduates who are competent to function as entry level registered nurses. Professional nursing is a dynamic and interactive process that views the client, family, and community holistically. Nursing uses high-level technical skills and critical thinking to assist in health promotion, disease prevention and management across the life span, and the care of the dying client.
Nursing processes are the framework by which nurses think critically, use decision making skills and provide competent care. The curriculum includes a balance of general education, current nursing theory, and clinical and laboratory experience. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
This program is for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) who wish to complete a registered nursing program with an associate of science degree. The nursing program is a Maryland State Board of Nursing approved program designed to provide students with the knowledge, skill, and understanding necessary to function effectively in all areas of professional nursing. Graduates of the nursing program are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
