Make a difference every single day with an associate degree in nursing.

Our associate degree in nursing program is designed to give you a well-rounded view of today’s healthcare industry. With the way the healthcare industry is constantly evolving, we work with employers and working nurse clinicians to continually update our curriculum, ensuring that our students get the most up-to-date education possible.

Through a combination of classroom learning, active learning, and clinical rotations, you’ll develop the full range of skills needed to find work as a professional nurse. Not only do working nurse clinicians help create our curriculum, they also teach classes. And with our small class sizes, you’ll be able to get lots of individualized attention from your instructors.

Licensed nurses are in high demand and this program prepares you to start a great career in this field. Best of all, you will complete the program in approximately 18 months. Once you graduate, you’ll be eligible to take the licensing exam to become a registered nurse (RN). RNs are able to work in a wide variety of clinical environments, giving you lots of excellent career opportunities to choose from.

I chose Baker because they had such a detailed laid out plan for me. It got me working as a nurse and their goal is to see everyone off and working. Baker faculty are very prepared professionals. I felt like they set me up for success.
