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 profession as a registered nurse (RN). Classroom theory, challenging assignments, skill labs, simulations, and clinical experiences help to prepare college graduates for an entry-level position. Upon successful completion of the nursing training degree 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 (RNs).
The nursing degree program includes training classes in the following topics:
- Foundations of Patient Care
- Complex Medical Surgical Nursing
- Maternal and Pediatric Care
- Mental Health
- Surgical Nursing
- Gerontological Nursing
- Obstetrical Nursing
*While Gwinnett Institute provides test preparation and review assistance to students, it cannot guarantee any college student will be able to take or pass any type of licensure exam. RN students must be mindful throughout their entire nursing training program that licensure is a pre-requisite for employment as an RN and to diligently prepare themselves to meet this important requirement.
Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 9 percent from 2020 to 2030, 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. Demand for registered nursing classes will continue to increase as the population ages. RN program classes will teach graduates how to manage, educate and care for patients with chronic conditions including arthritis, Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer, and diabetes. Registered nursing classes will teach nurses how to work in long-term care facilities and outpatient facilities. These RN program classes will teach nurses how to care for elderly patients that have suffered heart attack, stroke and other healthcare traumas in long-term care facilities. RN programs will also teach nurses how to manage the aging population that is treated in home or during hospice care. Finally, graduates of nursing degree programs will be needed to replace the retiring generation of baby boomer nurses.
Gwinnett Institute offers nursing courses to gain essential skills and training to achieve entry-level positions in the nursing career field. These courses will be the first step in starting a rewarding career.
