ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING
The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program is to prepare graduates to care for and manage groups of clients with common, complex health problems with predictable outcomes in structured settings. The graduate is prepared to function under the direction and guidance of a professional nurse as well as guide licensed practical nurses, and unlicensed assistant personnel (UAP) in the provision of nursing care. In addition, the graduate is prepared to assume ethical-legal responsibilities to practice according to ANA Standards and under the guidelines of the North Carolina Nursing Practice Act. The graduate is prepared to take the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure as a registered nurse.
