Associate Degree in Registered Nursing
Registered nursing (RN) is one of the most popular careers in healthcare, and it’s no wonder why: with a wide range of exciting skillsets and excellent salary potential, registered nursing is a rewarding path of study for a student with a passion for the medical field.
RNs work independently or in collaboration with physicians and members of other health care disciplines, writing and managing patient care plans, assessing patient symptoms, provide assistance during examinations and treatments, and administering medications.
As a student in the registered nursing program, you’ll study in a fully equipped hospital laboratory setting, including high-tech patient simulators that feature sophisticated vital signs such as respirations and pulse. You will also gain hands-on experience during clinical rotations at local hospitals, included as part of your schedule.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, registered nursing is growing at twice the national average for all occupations, with an average salary of $90,840 in the NY/NJ Metro Area.
