Associates of Science in Nursing
An Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) is a tertiary education nursing degree which typically take 2 to 3 years to complete. In the United States, this type of degree is usually awarded by community colleges or similar nursing schools. Some four year colleges also offer this degree. Students awarded an Associate of Science in Nursing are qualified to sit for the NCLEX-RN and apply for licensure as a Registered Nurse.
Students enrolled in an Associate of Science in Nursing program would take courses in nursing, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, psychology and other social and behavioral sciences. The curriculum will also require supervised clinical experience.
Some hospital-based nursing schools that granted diplomas altered their curriculum to offer associate degrees.
The ASN is a good choice to get going in your nursing career. In as little as 14 months you could be working in a hospital, doctors office, or other clinical environment. With you ASN you can look at accelerated nursing programs for a faster track towards your BSN.

Nursing Major unemployment rate
More: Unemployment for all Majors *** not counting stay at home parents *** not counting those currently in grad school
Are things going well in Nursing?
More: All Majors Satisfaction ??? This is a social "life satisfaction" question. Overall, would people who graduated with a degree in Nursing say that their life is going well? It could be interpreted in terms of stress, salary, long hours, future prospects, etc. *** not counting those currently in grad school
Graduates who stayed in Nursing
More: All Majors Still in field ??? A high "got out" percentage can be interpreted a couple of ways -- for instance, perhaps the major is a great stepping stone to becoming a totally different career -- like a doctor. Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
