The Associate of Sciences Degree Nursing Program is designed to prepare students for the licensure examination for registered nurses. The course of study includes both theory presentation and supervised clinical laboratory experience at affiliating healthcare agencies.
As a nursing student at HCC, you will practice in the Nursing Skills Lab and Simulation Center using high-fidelity simulation to allow you to experience real-world scenarios in a simulated environment. You will master all of the basic competencies necessary to practice as a registered nurse during this exciting time in healthcare.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 26 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur primarily because of technological advancements, an increased emphasis on preventative care, and the large, aging baby-boomer population who will demand more healthcare services as they live longer and more active lives.
The median annual wage of registered nurses was $64,690 in May 2010.
The Associate of Sciences Degree Nursing Program is approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The program provides opportunities to plan for career mobility through courses that articulate with baccalaureate nursing programs in the state of Maryland.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions to the Dean of Nursing and Allied Health, the Allied Health Academic Advisor, and the Transcript Evaluator.
Students are Strongly Encouraged to view the Online Pre-Nursing Advising videos prior to attending a session.
