How it works
Our associate degree in Nursing is a selective admission program. You may apply into the program only after completion of all required prerequisite coursework. While completing your required prerequisite coursework, you will also be able to register for classes in our bachelor’s degree in Health Science. Once you have applied and been accepted into our associate degree in Nursing program, you will be then able to take the core nursing classes towards your associate degree in Nursing.
Upon completion of your degree, you will take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) to become licensed as an RN. Once you have passed the NCLEX and are licensed as an RN, you may wish to complete your bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
Hundreds of our nursing graduates work in hospitals and health care centers throughout Connecticut. Employers identify our graduates as exceptionally caring and compassionate individuals who deliver safe, quality care. A Goodwin nursing degree can open up a new world for you, one that includes career satisfaction, prestige, and a great sense of making a difference in the lives of others.
