Nursing Program Overview
Accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the nursing program utilizes laboratory and clinical experiences in preparing students for careers in twenty-first century healthcare settings. The modern nurse is far more than care giver and support staff. The modern nurse is an integral part of a health care team, collaborating with his or her colleagues on all healthcare decisions regarding patient care; 21st century nurses utilize a variety of skills to fulfill their team role.
Bryant and Stratton College strives to graduate nurses who are ready for this dynamic healthcare role. Training takes place with the help of computer-aided instruction, telecommunication technologies, clinical simulations, and other technical strategies, ensuring nursing program graduates are fully trained for the ever-changing technical landscape of healthcare.
They also place a great deal of focus on blending clinical decision-making with the role of personalized care for patients. Our students are trained to blend several core nursing care components that have been established by the National League for Nursing.
Those components include: professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision-making, caring intervention, teaching and learning, collaboration, and managing care. With health care needs changing as our society evolves and changes, this complement of skills will ensure our graduates find themselves immediately prepared for a nursing career and poised to further their education in the future.
Associate of Applied Science
The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) nursing program of study is a two-year program geared toward preparing nurses to take the NCLEX-RN examination. This program blends nursing fundamentals with a strong liberal-arts foundation, educating the whole learner.
