Associate of Science in Nursing Overview
An aging population combined with a growing number of patients with access to health insurance is expected to create demand for skilled nurses.* Purdue Global's Associate of Science in Nursing is designed to help you develop the knowledge, clinical skills, and work habits to direct and manage patient care, communicate with patients and caregivers, and participate as a member of a health care team.
Program highlights include:
- Classroom and online activities feature videos, tests and quizzes, simulations, and discussion boards.
- Laboratory requirements are completed at the Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Des Moines, Iowa; or Lincoln, Nebraska, locations, which are equipped with medical tools typically used in the field and simulators for clinical scenarios.
- Real-world clinical practice experiences are incorporated throughout the program at various health care facilities in your local area.†
