Economic reports are projecting an 11% growth in nursing jobs in Yavapai County and 16% percent growth in Arizona over the next five years. Yavapai College is meeting that demand by training women and men through a high quality, low cost nursing curriculum.
“Yavapai College has a well-respected nursing program, and the students are very successful in passing their national nursing board exam upon graduation to become Registered Nurses,” said Mary Brown, Nursing Program Director.
“We’re also responding to the need for nurses to be skilled in information technology by incorporating an electronic health records system into the classroom and the clinical lab settings,” added Brown. “We will also be enhancing critical thinking and skill acquisition in a safe, friendly environment while maintaining the same high academic standards that the people of Yavapai County have come to expect from their college.”
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing and will be eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.
The nursing faculty share the mission and values of Yavapai College. We are committed to contributing to the profession of nursing through teaching and service. We recognize that nursing students are unique, come from diverse backgrounds, and have individual learning needs. We believe that nursing is an art and science and that a sound nursing education curriculum integrates knowledge from the sciences and the humanities. The nursing curriculum is based on concepts relating to the client, health, environment, nursing therapeutics, and learning.
