Fresno, CA, March 14, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts has proudly announced the addition of a new Associate of Science in Nursing Program at their Fresno Campus. The new AS in Nursing program is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing and Institutionally Accredited by the Accrediting Bureau for the Health Education Schools.
The Associate of Science in Nursing Program has two pathways. The AP pathway is for applicants with an LVN license and the Generic pathway is for non-nursing applicants. Students will study a wide variety of curricular content required for licensure by the California Board of Registered Nursing. Students will study fundamentals of nursing and required technical skills, health assessment, pharmacology, critical children and families and psychiatric/mental health nursing. A complex medical surgical/leadership course is offered in the final semester of the program to reinforce previous learning. After program completion, students will receive an NCLEX prep class to prepare for RN licensure board examination.
The Associate of Science in Nursing Program aims to motivate and educate undergraduate nursing students to meet the healthcare needs of individuals, families, and communities. This program supports the ongoing need to assist the nation’s professional development of nurses and to heed the call to provide opportunities to continue the cycle of learning.
"We are pleased that the Board of Registered Nursing has given us approval to provide the Central Valley with an opportunity to further their education. The program will prepare students to become safe entry level Registered Nurses in a variety of healthcare settings. We have received much support from the community and our clinical partners and want to say “Thank You” to everyone who has helped us receive our approval.”
- Samantha Manlosa Sanchez – Associate of Science in Nursing Director
