Associate of Science in Nursing Program

The associate of science in nursing (ASN) program is a five-semester program for students who want an entry-level career in nursing.

The ASN is designed to be completed in five semesters. It accepts students in the spring semester.

The ASN degree allows you to begin your career as an RN in a variety of settings. The curriculum design also provides for progression to our BSN completion program. The BSN-C allows you to broaden your career opportunities and further your education to become a nurse anesthetist, nurse practitioner, nurse leader, or educator.

The low numbers represent inclusion of attrition often for competing priorities and lack of financial resources. The numbers also represent that while we are designated as a full time program, students have historically completed at a part-time rate.

Hear it first-hand...

I chose Aultman College because  of its small class size and one-on-one classroom experiences. Aultman College is a great school that will provide hands-on education in a great learning environment.
