Associate in Science with an Emphasis in Pre-Nursing
Allen’s pre-nursing associate degree prepares students for successful transfer to college and university nursing school study by providing a solid foundation in physical science and health-related courses. With a pre-nursing associate degree, students’ career goals may focus toward becoming a registered nurse, a licensed practical nurse, a nurse practitioner, or working in public health or another healthcare field. Allen’s affordable preparation classes lay the groundwork for a successful career in healthcare.
The Associate in Science with an Emphasis in Pre-Nursing degree track is a sequence of recommended health science and general education courses, such as biology, anatomy and physiology, and nutrition, designed to meet most requirements for pre-nursing programs, and serve as preparation for application to nursing schools and nursing programs offered by Kansas colleges and universities. Graduation with a pre-nursing associate degree helps to assure that successful transition.
Students pursuing pre-nursing degrees in central and southeast Kansas often transfer from Allen’s pre-nursing programs to Washburn University, Baker University, Pittsburg State University, Neosho County Community College, or Fort Scott Community College nursing programs to complete their degrees and obtain their licensures.
