The Department of Nursing at ABAC offers immersive and comprehensive programs that teach students to provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public about various health conditions, and provide advice and emotional support for patients and families. Our graduates leave prepared to enter the nursing field with hands-on, applicable experience and the confidence and skills necessary for success.
This department offers options for those just beginning their nursing journey, as well as those with existing experience in health sciences. The Associate of Science in nursing is a two year degree track for students interested in becoming a Registered Nurse. Those with existing experience may be eligible for the one year Bridge Program to reach RN status.
We’re also proud to offer the Bachelors of Science in Nursing program for those with existing Registered Nurse status interested in completing their baccalaureate degree online. Students are expected to apply knowledge and skills in leadership, quality improvement, healthcare financing and policies, patient safety, and technology integration to provide high quality care and evidence-based practice. Graduates of the BSN program have enjoyed success in positions such as Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Anesthetist, Certified Nurse Midwifes, and Clinical Nurse Specialists.
