Program description

Associate in Nursing

Care for yourself and others with a rewarding career in the healthcare field by reaching for Gateway’s Nursing associate degree program. Vital members of the healthcare team, nurses care for patients in a variety of medical settings, promote health and wellness and educate patients on health-related topics. If you’re passionate about supporting others’ well-being and want to make a difference in your community, this program can chart your success.

Nursing-Associate Degree program is the dynamic interpersonal goaldirected process that seeks to promote optimal health within the context of individuals, family, community and society. The concept of caring, which is central to nursing, is communicated through both attitude and action. Nursing uses the nursing process, a problem solving approach to provide holistic care to individuals, families, and groups within the health care system. Nurses assess health and make clinical decisions to provide safe and effective nursing care according to standards of practice within legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks. Nursing practice is based on its own body of knowledge. Through collaboration with other health care professionals, nursing is responsive to the needs of the community across the health-illness continuum. The program may be completed in two academic years of full-time study. Individuals who are Licensed Practical Nurses should contact Gateway for information regarding advanced standing opportunities.

This program is also available on a part-time basis.
