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.

Alycia Murdie

I'm a single mother of 3 and work full time. I came to the point of my life where I was ready to change my profession and do something that will better our lives. So I was looking around at different schools, calling around seeing what they offer. Then my mom told me about Ross. I was nervous of course, but I called and the gentleman I talked to was so upbeat and supportive. Made me feel like they were really willing to help me out. I set up an interview with the school and I met with Brandi. Brandi is amazing!! She was so friendly and listened to all of my needs and wants. I started school in May 2018, of course I was nervous, but everyone helped me out with all of my questions. Every time I walk in for class, they are always so friendly and knew my name from day one. I was in the evening MA program. My teacher was very helpful and if I needed help they would sit down with me and work one-on-one. I'm now on my externship with the school. I'm at an ENT and I love it! I'm so glad I took the step and called Ross because now I see everything I learned in school coming out everyday and realize every day that my life will be for the better with this career.

My name is Chana Ware. I attended Ross Medical In Portage, MI. Ross is an awesome school to attend. They have great instructors, as well as a great staff. They were very helpful and inspirational. I would not have made it without the staff at Ross. And now because of all of the support that I received from them, I can say that I have a great career as a Registered Medical Assistant.

I learned so much in my short time here at Ross. Mrs. Hawley was one of the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure of learning from. She made every day in the classroom enjoyable and amazing. I'm so glad I chose Ross to help me step into my medical career. Now that I've graduated, I feel prepared to start this next chapter in my life and I am very excited.

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.
