Associate of Science (AS)
with track in Nursing
The Department of Nursing (DON) offers a two year program leading to a transferable Associate of Science Degree. This initial program of study is designed to prepare students for admission into the Department of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program and prepares graduates for admission to other BSN programs. The nursing track Associate of Science degree program allows students to attain basic core education knowledge upon which a professional career in nursing can be built and is a path for admission into Armstrong’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
Note: the Nursing Track Associate of Science does not lead to an Associate Degree in Nursing.
The student in the transferrable associate of science degree track, having completed all course work is eligible for admission to the BSN program. The BSN program at Armstrong is very competitive and admission cannot be guaranteed. Armstrong's nursing program admits students each Spring and Fall semester. Please check the DON website regularly for specific application dates and deadlines.
Career opportunities for graduates with an Associate of Science degree include employment in a variety of health care environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and doctors’ office as a Phlebotomist, Personal Care Technician, Unit Secretary and other medically related positions.
