The Associate of Applied Science degree program in Nursing provides students with principles and knowledge from general education and the biological and behavioral sciences, as well as the science of nursing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The experience here at Ross Education was fun and the instructors knew what they were doing, which made me really enjoy the entire experience.Ricardo Leon Velasco Graduate Medical Assistant student at Johnson City, TN campus Graduation: December 19, 2018
I only had a little confidence in myself when I started at Ross. I thought it was almost impossible for me to learn after being out of school for so long. SURPRISE! The staff here at Ross had more faith in me than I did. Ross Medical doesn't treat you like a student, but as family. You can feel the love and care they have for each and every student. I would recommend Ross Medical to anyone. Come where learning is fun and exciting!Nucheekee Mays Graduate Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration student at Erlanger, KY campus Graduation: May 30, 2019

My experience at Ross has been one of the most liberating experiences in my life. I came to Ross because I needed a change in my life. Nothing else was working and I felt as if I was stuck in a rut, so I had to make a choice. I was scrolling through Facebook one day and the ad popped up Hmmm six-to-nine month courses? I figured I could do that, considering my excuse had been that school takes too long and I do not have time to balance that and being a single mom. I did my research and realized every job I had applied for fit right into the MIBOA program. I was intrigued so I decided to check them out. When I came in, everyone was nice and very helpful. They gave me an in-depth view on the program and what to expect. They assured me they were a nationally accredited school and their graduation rates were great. I was won over by them showing me the rising stats related to the field and that alone gave me the push I needed to go ahead and apply. I am very glad I did. I had one of the best instructors, aside from everyone helping me and keeping me motivated. The class size was small so I had a lot of one on one, any questions I had I could literally ask anyone and if they did not know they could get me to someone that did. At times it was overwhelming, I do admit, but I made it - and not alone - that is the best part. Soon I was in my last mod and on my way to externship as a proud student of Ross Education Center and now I feel like I am ready for anything. Thank you, Ross. My new life started here.Jessica Henderson Graduate Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration student at Fort Wayne, IN campus Graduation: February 26, 2019
