You've always wanted to care for people, right? Make them feel better when they're sick? Help them live healthier lives? Well, that's exactly what a nurse does, so a nursing major may be a great choice for you.
If your goal is to become a nurse, there are two paths you can take.
1. You can earn an associate degree, which will give you the education, training and preparation to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination – known as NCLEX – to become a licensed, registered nurse.
Once you earn your associate degree and pass the NCLEX, you can work as a nurse in a hospital or another health care setting.
2. You can continue your education to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing, which will give you the advanced skills you need to assume a leadership or management role. Since you will already be a licensed, registered nurse, you may choose to work while you pursue your bachelor’s degree.
At Pitt-Bradford, you can choose one path or both.
Once again, we are happy to present the results of our annual graduate survey which we conduct each year in early spring. Our purpose in surveying the faculty and the graduates is to learn about the extent to which the faculty and the graduates perceive that the program of study prepared the graduate to meet the Student Learning Outcomes. The numbers reported in the tables reflect the average score on each item based on the completed surveys received from the faculty members and the graduates. We are pleased to note that faculty and graduates have consistently reported that the program of study prepared the graduate to meet the outcomes.
Alumni surveys for AS and RN-BSN graduates are mailed in the spring, one year following graduation. We encourage all the AS and RN-BSN graduates to complete and return your surveys to us. Your feedback is vital! Thank you!
