Become a Registered Nurse at HCI
If a career in nursing is calling to you, you know there’s no other job that will satisfy that need to work in the medical field, helping people and offering the best in patient and family services.
You also probably know that you don’t want to wait another day to get started! HCI’s nursing education programs help you become the best healthcare provider you can be, and understand the challenges you’ll face along the way. HCI specially designed the program to assist you in navigating those challenges so you never have to sacrifice your education or professional goals.
HCI’s Nursing Programs
To become a nurse, you may want to obtain either an associate of science degree in nursing (ASN) or a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN).
The ASN degree program prepares students to take the National Council Licensing Exam to become an RN, or registered nurse. Included on this 72-credit degree path are traditional study courses as well as clinical experience to give you hands-on preparedness for your nursing career.
The BSN degree program prepares students to take the National Council Licensing Exam to become a nurse at a higher level of experience and professional eligibility. Included in this 120-credit degree path is all the information covered in the associate’s degree program, plus more: an expansion on technical nursing skills, critical care concepts and professional development in areas like management and leadership.
The Curriculum at HCI
In whichever degree program you choose, you’ll benefit from HCI’s unique hybrid schedule and flexibility of coursework. Unlike other institutions that require students be on campus up to 5 days per week, HCI students need only report once or twice a week. The rest of the coursework can be completed online, offering much-needed flexibility to those already working in nursing, or those with limited mobility or other restrictions or limitations.
