Labouré’s three step program allows you to move into the nursing profession in manageable steps, with earlier employment opportunities than traditional programs. Step one is the associate in science degree in Nursing (ASN), leading to eligibility for the NCLEX-RN examination (step two). Step three is the baccalaureate (BSN) program.
Completion of the BSN program, will equip you to handle the full scope of professional nursing responsibilities, making you eligible for a wider range of career options and far more competitive in the application process. Many hospitals now require a bachelor of science in Nursing (BSN) as an entry-level credential.
The associate in science in Nursing degree combines nursing theory and hands-on clinical experience with courses in general education which focus on broad areas of human knowledge including history, sociology, mathematics, and science as well as religious and ethical perspectives.
Upon successful completion of the ASN program, you will be qualified to take the NCLEX-RN examination. Once you hold the credential RN, you can be employed as a nurse and are eligible to continue into the BSN (for RNs) program.
