Paramedic to RN Bridge Program, Associate of Science
The Paramedic to ADN Program offers a unique opportunity for a qualified licensed paramedic who has successfully completed the General Education and prerequisite courses. A paramedic admitted to this program will begin in spring semester along with the regular blended student cohort. Then, a summer Paramedic to RN Transition course (NURN 219) consolidates some second and third semester material, providing a savings of time and cost. A grade of C or higher must be earned in this transition course to be counted toward the program requirements and to be able to continue in the Associate Degree Nursing - Registered Nursing Program.
The CCBC Nursing Program prepares the Nurse generalist to care for patients, families, and communities by:
- Promoting Optimal Health:
- Advocate and promote physical, mental, and social well-being, with consideration of preferences and values.
- Developing a Professional Identity:
- Establish one's role as a nurse in ways that reflect integrity, responsibility, ethical practices, and a commitment to the profession.
- Demonstrating Nursing Judgment:
- Formulate decisions in practice, substantiated with evidence, that integrate nursing science in the provision of safe, quality care.
- Exhibiting a Spirit of Inquiry:
- Examine evidence that underlies clinical nursing practice, question assumptions, and offer new insights to improve health care.
