Nursing is a profession that provides for the physical and emotional needs of human beings from birth to the end of life. Registered Nurses (RNs) work as patient advocates to promote health, prevent disease, and help people cope with illness. When providing direct patient care, Registered Nurses observe, assess, and record symptoms, reactions, and progress; administer medications; instruct patients and families in proper care, and assist in convalescence and rehabilitation.
The Brookdale Nursing Program offers a comprehensive and challenging curriculum that fulfills the requirements for an Associate Degree in Applied Science. Upon completion of the Nursing Program, graduates are prepared for entry level positions in acute care hospitals and long term care facilities. Graduates from the Nursing program are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensing Exam for Registered Nursing. Successful completion of this examination results in licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN). Brookdale’s highly respected nursing graduates are employed in all aspects of nursing in health care facilities in Monmouth county and surrounding areas.
