The Everest nursing degree programs* are designed to provide students with the hands-on education and skills needed to work as a professional registered nurse (RN) in a diverse health care field. Everest offers three nursing degree programs:
Associate Degree Nursing (ADN)
The Everest Associate Degree Nursing program is designed to provide students with the knowledge base and necessary skills to become a registered nurse. Our curriculum requires that students assume the responsibility for their learning, decision-making and demonstration of independent thinking. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are of utmost importance to becoming an effective and safe registered nurse.
The nursing program faculty and staff have set the standards for students to begin the life-long learning in nursing. The Everest associate degree in nursing is a program that meets the curriculum guidelines of the respective state board of nursing in the state where the program is located. Program policies, procedures and requirements have been established to represent the standards for nursing education and safe clinical practice.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program (BSN)
There’s a growing demand for higher-educated nurses, but there are not nearly enough Bachelor's of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) prepared registered nurses (RNs) to fill the need today. That shortage is projected to grow in the next several years.
This creates a huge opportunity for anyone who has a desire to enter the nursing profession and have more marketability and growth potential for the future to become a registered nurse with a baccalaureate degree.
The Everest Bachelor of Science in Nursing program offers the extensive scope of training and higher level of education that many clinical sites prefer today. In addition to the core nursing instruction, our BSN program includes advanced courses required for leadership and management positions. A BSN also gives graduates the option to pursue a master’s degree in nursing, which is required to pursue advanced practice nursing specialties such as a nurse practitioner.
* Programs and schedules vary by campus.
