Program description

Associate in Science Degree in Nursing

Fresno City College has the largest community college Associate Degree Nursing Program in California and the second largest program in the USA. It is designed to educate students at the basic technical level of nursing practice, obtain an Associate of Science degree, be eligible to take the NCLEX (National Nursing Licensing Examination) and work in a structured health care setting.

The profession of registered nursing involves the provision of health care services, both direct and indirect, that focus on the maintenance, promotion and restoration of health. This includes basic health care to help people cope with difficulties in daily living that are associated with actual or potential problems of health, illness or the treatment thereof. Nursing is a dynamic problem-solving profession that focuses on the response of the individual to health problems. The practice of registered nursing requires a substantial amount of scientific knowledge and technical skills as well as leadership and managerial abilities. Students attend classes on the Fresno City College campus. Nursing experience is provided in selected local hospitals and health agencies.
