The purpose of the University of North Georgia Associate of Science in Nursing degree program is to prepare the graduate to function in the five interrelated roles as developed by the Council of Associate Degree programs of the National League for Nursing. In each of these roles, the graduates base their practice on the problem solving process in rural/urban settings, focusing on clients from culturally diverse settings.
This program is designed to satisfy the present educational requirements to enable graduates to take the licensee examination in nursing. however, the licensing board may changes these requirements prior to the completion of the course of study. While reasonable efforts will be made to enable graduates to satisfy additional requirements, no assurances can be made that the university will be able to offer these additional courses or, if taken, that such courses will entitle the graduate to take the licensure examination.
