The AAS-N program provides students with on-campus classroom lectures, simulation, and lab activities. Clinical experiences occur in hospitals and clinical agencies throughout the region; some clinical rotations may require long commutes from campus. Students will need to arrange their own transportation. 

Laptop computers may be required for the AAS-N program. iPads and other tablets are not supported by the School of Nursing at this time.
