What is Nursing?

According to the American Nurses Association “Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.”

An Associate Degree is just an entry point into the profession; with further education, there are many more opportunities for advanced practice roles such as nurse educator, nurse practitioner, nurse midwife and nurse researcher.
