Our Orlando Campus Offers an Associate of Science in Nursing Degree

The Associate of Science in Nursing degree program provides training to prepare college graduates to enter the nursing profession as a registered nurse.  Classroom theory, challenging assignments, skill labs, simulations, and clinical experiences help to prepare college graduates for an entry-level nursing position.  Upon successful completion of the program and demonstrated nursing competence, the college graduates will be eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN licensure examination.*   Upon graduation and licensure, college graduates will be eligible to seek employment in hospitals, clinics, private duty, urgent and acute care centers, and various other medical or business facilities requiring the services of  registered nurses.

The nursing program includes training in the following areas.

  • Foundations of Patient Care

*While Gwinnett Institute provides test preparation and review assistance to college students, it cannot guarantee any college student will be able to take or pass any type of licensure exam.  College students must be mindful throughout their entire training program that licensure is a pre-requisite for employment as a nurse and to diligently prepare themselves to meet this important requirement.

Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics**. After graduating from the Associates of Science Degree Program in Nursing and successfully passing the NCLEX-RN licensure exam, students will further their career to become a registered nurse.
