Nursing AAS (RN)
A two-year Associate degree program
Our Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in nursing prepares students with both a theoretical and clinical foundation for a career as a registered nurse (RN). At Maria College, our focus is on the Art and Science of nursing. Upon completion of this program, students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®).
