An Associate of Science Degree in Nursing is a two-year college degree and will permit the graduate to take the test to become a Registered Nurse(RN). The Associate Degree RN works in hospitals and physician offices but may not be hired for management, public health or school nurse positions.
A Baccalaureate of Science Degree in Nursing permits the graduate to be hired for a larger variety of nursing jobs. A student must have a valid RN license to apply for this program at BYU-Idaho.
This cluster is open to all students- no need to apply through the nursing department. The four available courses teach family nursing skills and explore women's health issues.
