ASN in Nursing


The Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program is a self-contained two-year program of study focused on bedside clinical nursing.  Graduates of the ASN program at the Presbyterian School of Nursing at Queens University of Charlotte will:

  1. Practice as a generalist nurse with essential knowledge and skills that facilitates communication, critical thinking and a holistic caring approach to the healthcare needs of society.
  2. Pursue knowledge and personal growth, accountability, respect for self and others, and contribution to society.
  3. Provide therapeutic nursing interventions, client education and manage the nursing care of individuals and groups in collaboration with the health care team in multiple acute and community health care settings.
  4. Incorporate the IOM competencies into nursing practice using informatics, patient centered care, the interdisciplinary team, evidence based practice and quality improvement in care of the client.

Students completing the ASN program are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination- RN (NCLEX-RN) to obtain licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN). These graduates may begin working as a RN, once licensed.  ASN graduates are encouraged to continue their education through our RN to BSN and MSN programs.

Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for prospective students in the ASN program.  Additional information on future changes within the PSON and comments by Dr. Tama Morris, Associate Dean of the Blair College of Health and Director of the Presbyterian School of Nursing may be found in "The Future of Nursing".
