Nursing A.A.S.


Learn the fine art of nursing.

The Nursing Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program prepares you for a career as a registered nurse. Nursing courses include didactic and clinical training over a two-year period that includes but is not limited to fundamentals of nursing, pathophysiology, pharmacology, nursing care of the adult in a medical-surgical setting and an intensive care unit, family nursing including care of children and expectant mothers, mental health nursing, and community health nursing.

In addition to classroom education, you will participate in clinical settings in hospitals and agencies located in middle Tennessee. The program includes a course to help with the transition from student into independent clinical decision-makers. This degree program trains you to work with persons from various cultures across the life span and the wellness-to-illness continuum.

At the conclusion of the program, you are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The NSCC nursing program has established excellent program outcomes which allow its registered nurses the ability to sustain lifelong professional accomplishments in fields such as obstetrics, psychiatric care, critical care, and many others.
