The primary role of the Associate-prepared registered nurse is to direct provision of care. Students will build from the broad foundational knowledge acquired in GE courses to develop the knowledge and skills required. Students in the Associate degree program utilize the nursing process and critical thinking to provide safe, effective, holistic nursing care for small groups of patients with complex alterations in health in structured and unstructured health care settings. Functioning as members of the health-care team, Associate degree nurses work with other health care providers in many settings to meet health care needs of individuals and families. Graduates of the program are prepared to supervise other health care providers and to delegate and manage care given by others. Associate degree nurses subscribe to legal and ethical tenets of nursing practice.
