Three nursing students with female patient

Mission Statement
The Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) Program serves our community by preparing entry-level nursing graduates to meet the evolving healthcare needs of a diverse population, and by integrating the essential values of caring, integrity, excellence, empathy, holism and ethical and patient-centered care. The ASN program is committed to transforming individuals into dedicated, professional, critical thinkers whose basis of care is founded upon current scientific evidence.

Upon successful completion of the ASN program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN); this is a standardized exam that each state board of nursing utilizes to determine if a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice as a Registered Nurse.
