Associate Degree in Nursing: Your Next Adventure
Registered Nurses (RNs) play a vital role in health care. Patients interact with nurses more often than they may interact with their doctors, and skilled and compassionate nurses provide the quality care that patients need.
What is an ADN?
An associate degree in nursing (or ADN) can take you on your next adventure. Whether nursing is your first career choice or your new career change, the field of nursing opens the door to many different possibilities.
To become an RN, you must complete education and training that has been approved by the Florida Board of Nursing. Your education will involve a combination of nursing theory and medical knowledge courses, as well as hands-on training at a hospital or other medical facility.
Clinicals and labs help nursing students to apply what they have learned in the classroom on simulated patients. Not only will you become comfortable in working with patients, but you will build your confidence as a nurse.
An associate degree in nursing is the first step toward beginning a career as a nurse. The 72 credit hours of instruction and hands-on learning that you receive at Health Career Institute will prepare you for your next adventure as a Registered Nurse!
The ADventure of a Nursing Career
RNs work in hospitals and medical facilities like clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, and schools to provide the care that patients need. With a combination of knowledge about human health and medicine and medical technology and procedural skills, RNs are able to meet the needs of patients wherever they work.
