Nursing (RN), Associate of Science

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: registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN) and LPN to RN. 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. Graduates of the associate's degree Registered Nurse program earn an Associate of Science degree (A.S.) and are eligible to sit for the RN licensure examination (NCLEX-RN). The RN program articulates with bachelor's degree nursing programs allowing graduates to transfer or challenge credits. Under a special articulation agreement with Stevenson University, RN's are able to complete all requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree, except upper-level nursing courses, through Prince George's Community College. Stevenson University's upper-level nursing courses also are offered at Prince George's Community College, allowing all requirements to be completed in the county: For more information, contact Stevenson University at 877-468-6852 or
