Online PR News – 18-March-2010 – – Denver, CO, March 17, 2010– CollegeAmerica has recently added an Associate Degree in Nursing at their Denver campus for students interested in pursuing a nursing career.
The 20-month Associate Degree in Nursing is often treated as a stepping stone to a BSN and prepares a student to become a Registered Nurse (RN). Now, for the first time at CollegeAmerica, those aspiring to become RNs can complete the pre-requisite to achieving that dream in only 15 months (after pre-requisite courses).
The ADN program is approved by the State Board of Nursing in Colorado. All students need to complete general education courses, nursing foundation courses, and complete the nursing selection requirements prior to an interview with the nursing admission committee. All graduates are prepared to sit for the National Council of Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), and apply for a licensure to practice as a registered nurse in any of the 50 states or U.S. territories.
Students interested in this ADN program will be trained to utilize theory and research-based knowledge in the provision of care to the client, family, and community. Apart from flexibility, job security and good salaries, an associate degree in nursing will provide a variety of work options as well. You can choose from hospitals, private-practice clinics, federal nursing agencies, schools or even the military. Included as part of the course curriculum are medical-surgical nursing, obstetrical nursing, pediatric nursing, and mental health nursing – all knowledge that remains in high demand throughout Colorado and the country.
Students must complete the enrollment agreement and go through financial aid to declare how they are financing their education. The college also offers a variety of Student Financial Aid Programs to those who qualify, including their own EduLoan Program which significantly improves the opportunities for students to afford college.
With the increasing need for qualified nurses, especially those with advanced education and skills, and the current shortage of registered nurses in the U.S. today, nursing is soon proving to be a profession that has one of the highest starting salaries of any field and a career option definitely worth considering.
