AAS/ADN Nursing

A Nurturing and Rewarding Future

The mission of the Bryant & Stratton College Nursing Program is to provide quality nursing education and to facilitate the provision of exceptional health care in the region.  The Nursing Program emphasizes classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences that prepares students for both the world of work and for lifelong learning.  Learning strategies that incorporate modern technology are seen as integral components of the delivery methods. The AAS/ADN program is offered at our Akron, Bayshore, Eastlake, Parma, and Wauwatosa campuses. 

The Nursing Program provides a quality education that emphasizes classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences to prepare students for a challenging and rewarding career as a nurse. Computer-aided instruction, telecommunications technology, clinical simulations and other technical learning strategies are taught as integral components of the delivery methods needed to serve the educational needs of students in the 21st century.

The purpose of the Nursing Program is to prepare graduates to succeed in professional registered nursing roles. The program provides a foundation of learning which promotes the integration of clinical decision-making processes into the provision of nursing care to meet the health/illness needs of patients across the life span. The three roles of the Associate of Applied Science Degree nurse (Associate Degree Nursing in Wisconsin)--Provider of Care, Manager of Care, and Member of the Discipline of Nursing--describe the nursing practice and role expectations of the entry-level registered nurse. The core components of those roles, as established by the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN, 2013) are as follows: professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration and managing care. The framework provides direction for the selection and ordering of learning experiences to achieve program outcomes. This program prepares graduates to take the NCLEX-RN Examination after graduation.  It should be noted that graduates must take the NCLEX review course and pass the NCLEX-RN test prior to obtaining employment as a registered nurse.  Clinical sites and employers will require background checks and drug screening. Our Richmond, Hampton, Virginia Beach & Parma campuses are now offering a RN-BSN program for those with an existing RN credential. And our Parma, OH location offers a Bachelor of Science Nursing Generalist degree.
