The Nursing Program prepares graduates to provide direct client care in a safe, effective manner across multiple settings. To achieve this goal, three educational options exist in the program:
The registered nurse (RN) is prepared to manage the care of clients in any setting to achieve an optimal state of health. The RN uses the nursing process to assess and analyze the health needs and/or problems of clients, plan and implement appropriate actions based upon nursing diagnosis or identified client needs and evaluate the extent to which expected outcomes are achieved.
The Nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and the Maryland Board of Nursing.
