This knowledge forms the basis for utilizing the nursing process in a professional practice. Concurrent integration of theory into clinical practice is an important aspect of professional nursing education. A Registered Nurse can work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, home health, and a variety of other health care areas.

What is a Registered Nurse?

A registered nurse (RN) holds a Degree in Nursing and has successfully passed the NCLEX-RN exam and completed all of the licensing requirements set forth by the state board of nursing. Nurses work in many medical facilities alongside physicians, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and other healthcare professionals.

A nurse's basic function is to provide direct patient care by assessing and diagnosing their needs and then coming up with and implementing a care plan. There are a variety of specialties within the nursing field including geriatric, ambulatory care, psychiatric, pediatric oncology, and many more.

Nursing Clinical Hours

As part of the Nursing program at Ross, each student spends time in a variety of healthcare facilities including nursing homes, specialty clinics, mental health offices, and hospitals. The clinical provides students with the essential hands-on patient care experience in a real healthcare facility setting. It also gives students a chance to be exposed to different types of facilities, patients, and care before they are looking for a job.

Certification for Nursing Graduates

At the conclusion of the program, in order to practice as a nurse, students must register, take, and successfully pass the NCLEX-RN exam. This confers on them the title of Registered Nurse and gives them the legal and professional right to work as a nurse in a variety of healthcare settings.

A few things I like about Ross are the class size: not too big and not too small, so you're sure to get any answers or questions you have answered in class. Another thing I like is their hands-on portion in clinic. To me, it is very helpful and handy to learn before going out to extern. Lastly, what I like is the support you have from everyone. They just want to see you succeed and be confident. Also, the peer tutor program that is available to offer more help from students in your own class.

Kimberly Mangold

My name is Kimberly. I'm going to tell you how Ross has changed my life. I was working 40-60 hours a week at a factory, 7 days a week. I made the decision to try Ross and see where this life adventure takes me. I am now an RMA and work at Speciality Clinic. I worked very hard on working full time and going to school full time. Ross was a very important decision that I made for my life and a very special place for me. I would recommend that anyone try Ross. It will change your life forever, it did mine. Thank you - Kimberly

My time at Ross was a great experience. During my externship, I had an interview at a renal clinic. When I graduated, I began working a medical biller.
