The Nursing Program is designed to prepare graduates to practice as a registered nurse once licensure requirements are satisfied. The Associate Degree Nurse is expected to be able to provide safe and effective care to meet healthcare needs of individuals of any age in a variety of healthcare settings.
The nurse practices within the combination of the three roles: provider of care, manager of care, and member within the discipline of nursing. The faculty in the Department of Nursing believes that nursing is a unique profession concerned with assessing, promoting, maintaining, and restoring the health of individuals and families. The discipline of nursing incorporates the concepts of person-health-environment. The full Nursing Program is available on the Logan Campus. The Boone/Lincoln, Williamson, and Wyoming/McDowell campuses offer the program support courses only.
