Howard Community College's associate of arts degree in nursing is designed to prepare new graduates to assume careers as registered nurses in a variety of health care settings. The program is accredited by the National League for Nursing and approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing.
Completion of the program and recommendation by the director of nursing entitles graduates to be considered for admission to the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The associate of arts degree in nursing articulates into Maryland public colleges and universities with bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) programs. This provides an exceptional opportunity for students interested in entering the nursing field as soon as possible who also have the goal of furthering their education and professional advancement.
The clinical component of the Traditional RN program begins in the fall (day and evening/weekend options) and the spring (day only) semesters, and lasts for two years. Applications are only accepted for the fall semester.
