To obtain an AS degree in nursing, the learner must successfully complete all required courses. After successful program completion, graduates apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for the Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) to become a RN. The learner is taught the use of the nursing process at the registered nursing scope of practice for the maintenance of health and prevention of illness, for the observation and nursing care of persons experiencing changes in health status, and in the administration of prescribed medication and treatments. The successful RN possesses excellent communication skills required to educate clients and/or staff and consult with physicians and other members of the interdisciplinary health care team. The RN must possess sound clinical judgment, ethical decision-making, and abilities essential to safe and effective nursing practice as part of a health care team. The experienced RN delegates tasks to other personnel, assumes leadership and management roles, and supervises other team members.

Through an articulation agreement with the nursing program at Bemidji State University, interested graduates may continue their educational advancement through the Baccalaureate Degree completion program.
