Associate Degree in Nursing
If you're interested in a nursing career, Daymar College has the degree program for you. Our Associate of Science degree in Nursing is designed to provide the foundation for beginning the practice of professional nursing.
The curriculum of nursing education courses, as well as general education classes, can teach you how to provide patients with care that's safe, effective, patient-centered, timely and efficient. You'll have the opportunity to learn the skill sets that correspond with the level of practice, types of patients served and practice settings. You'll be introduced to the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics. Nurses who adhere to this code of ethics demonstrate competence, continuing self-improvement and personal self-care (wellness).
As a successful graduate of the program, you may be prepared to work as a beginning professional nurse in hospitals, physicians' offices, nursing and residential facilities, and home healthcare centers.
Our instructors use a hands-on training model that helps to build important nursing skills in our students in a diverse learning environment. Instructors also bring years of real-world experience into the classroom and understand what employers are looking for when hiring nurses. Our instructors also work hard to ensure that each student receives plenty of individual attention and support, and flexible scheduling can make it easy for you to fit classes into your busy schedule.
Our Career Services department can also help you take the next step in your career with resources like college internship seminar programs, interviewing tips and other career preparation services.
