Bryant & Stratton College’s associate degree in nursing prepares students to become safe and effective entry-level nurses through a relevant, high-quality, and modern course of study. Courses equip graduates with the knowledge they need to pursue their nursing license, preparing them to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) exam upon graduation.
