Nursing, AS


Return to Nursing Return to: Nursing

The Unit in Nursing prepares professional nurses for entry to practice at the associate degree level.  This includes advanced clinical skills and preparation for independent leadership and management roles in a variety of settings.

The Associate of Science in Nursing degree program (ASN) is approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and accredited by ACEN - Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (formerly NLNAC).  ASN graduates are required to take the national examination for registered nurse licensure.  A person with criminal convictions may be prohibited from licensure as a registered nurse by the boards of nursing in various states.  Prospective students in that situation should call the board of nursing in the state where they plan to practice.

Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university.  Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check at act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualifications or eligibility.  Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
