Program Purpose: The Chattahoochee Technical College Associate of Science Nursing Program prepares men and women to become safe practitioners in the delivery of health care. The curriculum provides a strong foundation in the practice of nursing and prepares the student to function safely within the framework of the registered nurse role. The faculty in the Chattahoochee Technical College Associate of Science Nursing Program believes that our role as nurse educators is to incorporate multiple teaching strategies to enhance student learning and to provide a caring, nurturing, supportive environment.
Throughout the program, students integrate classroom theory with clinical experiences that are related to the theory component. Nursing education incorporates effective therapeutic communication techniques, critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills, and the development of sound nursing judgment. Clinical experiences are selected to provide the associate degree nursing student with the greatest opportunity to become clinically competent. The ultimate goal of the faculty is to prepare the student to become a safe practitioner of nursing who will be an asset to the nursing profession and continue his/her professional growth and development.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Upon successfully passing the NCLEX-RN and meeting the requirements of the Georgia Board of Nursing, graduates are granted licensure to practice nursing in the state of Georgia as registered nurses.
