AdventHealth University is pleased to begin offering an associate of science in nursing degree, with its first cohort set to begin spring 2024.
“AdventHealth University is committed to playing a vital role in the nursing workforce pipeline, and this new nursing degree will promptly allow highly skilled and compassionate nurses to practice health care as ministry,” said Deena Slockett, Ed.D, MBA, RT(R)(M), interim provost at AdventHealth University. “Thank you to our outstanding nursing administrators for creating a robust program combined with valuable clinical experience that will appeal to those called to a nursing career.”
The ASN degree can be completed in as little as 20 months, and the coursework and clinical experience will prepare students to feel confident when taking their National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and embarking on their practice of nursing. Students will learn alongside health care professionals at AdventHealth’s world-class care centers. AdventHealth is recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for New Grads.
“Now is an exciting time to become a nurse,” said Julie Vincent, DNP, MBA, RN, CENP, who as chief integration officer helps to connect and facilitate AHU faculty and students with nursing resources at AdventHealth. “Nurses make a memorable difference in the lives of so many patients and families.”
AHU’s ASN program is pursuing candidacy through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
This associate degree expands the continuously growing nursing degree portfolio available at AdventHealth University, consisting of a daytime and evening bachelor’s nursing degrees, RN-to-BSN degree, master’s nursing degree (administration track and education track), doctoral degree in nursing practice, and doctoral degree in nurse anesthesia practice.
Application deadlines for the ASN degree are Aug. 1 for spring trimester and April 1 for fall trimester. To learn more about how to earn an associate of science in nursing degree, please visit the ASN webpage.
