Welcome to the Department of Nursing and thank you for your interest in our nursing program. The faculty and staff are dedicated to providing quality nursing education to our students. As the health care landscape continues to shift and change, it is vital that we prepare our students for practice in both traditional and non-traditional health care environments. The faculty and staff are dedicated to this endeavor and work collaboratively with students, ASA College administration, and our clinical partners to realize these efforts.

ASA College provides quality education and training to students who face a rapidly changing employment market. We offer a complete range of educational and career support services to facilitate the transition period between the training program and the real work environment. Our facilities contain the most advanced technologies to help every student gain a full understanding of the practical aspects of the nursing profession. The hands-on experience of the classroom is supplemented by our job-placement services. Every aspect of the student’s learning environment is fully supported by experienced and highly qualified instructors.
Many students will elect to further their education to advance their careers. ASA College FL campus offers an RN to BSN Program that offers the didactic portion of the program fully online, with practical experiences offered in NY. RN to BSN Program is designed expressly for associate degree RNs who want to further their educational growth and development. ASA College’s nursing students will find an easy transition into the RN to BSN program as it is taught through the same Blackboard Learning Management System as the AAS in Nursing.
The RN to BSN program builds upon your prior learning reducing unnecessary repetition to minimize your investment of time and money (ask your admission representative for scholarship/discount offers for ASA students). This makes the program uniquely flexible to practicing Registered Nurses with full-time employment commitments.
Students may choose to continue their professional training by taking advanced coursework that will lead to employment in the field of healthcare; or further their education and become Nurse Practitioners, work in research or as leaders and administrators.
