Nursing - A.A. Degree (Transfer)

nursing graduates at hcc
The profession of a lifetime.

HCC's renown nursing education program offers convenient programming options to help students meet a critical workforce need in our region. The traditional associate degree nursing program provides day and evening/weekend class options in the fall, and day-only classes in the spring semesters; the clinical component lasts for two years. There is also a competitive admission accelerated associate degree program requiring continuous study to complete all required clinical coursework within 14 months; this is a full-time, daytime-only program, beginning only in the summer.

As a graduate, you should be able to:

  1. Promote patient-centered care that meets the patient’s health needs while respecting their culture, preferences and values.
  2. Apply principles of teaching and learning, health promotion and reduction of risk potential to provide health education for patients across the lifespan.
  3. Collaborate with patients and interprofessional team members in acute, long-term and community health care settings to advocate for safe quality care.
  4. Communicate effectively to assess patient’s health status, and to develop and manage the plan of care.
  5. Demonstrate leadership and accountability by utilizing legal, ethical, and professional standards to provide safe, quality nursing care.
  6. Perform nursing interventions based on current standards of practice, policies and procedures to optimize the patient’s health.
  7. Integrate professional knowledge, science and evidence to formulate nursing judgments.
  8. Challenge traditional and existing nursing practices used to solve clinical problems by examining the evidence that underlies current practice.
