Become an RN to Positively Impact Your Community
Becoming a registered nurse may be your dream career if you want to care for people and make a difference in your community. “Here at Cambridge College of Healthcare and Technology, we have created a program to bridge the gap between desiring a career in Nursing and making your dream a reality. According to the Georgia Board of Health Care Workforce (GBHCW, 2022), Georgia is number six in the nation for the highest nursing shortage. This data, when coupled with the limited number of seats available in RN programs, has created the need for a pathway for more students to enroll in nursing programs. Our direct admit model ensures qualified students have access to a comprehensive, high-quality nursing educational experience, preparing them to be dynamic registered nurses poised to serve their communities.” stated Tara Stephen, MSN-Ed, RN, PHN, ASN Program Dean.
The ASN Atlanta Program was Uniquely Designed for Your Success
Our program cost is all-inclusive; tuition includes prerequisite and core nursing courses, books, supplies, uniforms, and licensing exam expenses. We also have embedded flexibility to allow students to receive transfer credit for prerequisites or healthcare program licenses through our bridge track for LPNs, RTs, and Paramedics.
Once admitted to the program, we have threaded support for students throughout each course. Our faculty, staff, and leadership are here to help you every step of the way. Through innovative instruction in the classroom, simulation lab, and clinical settings, students will receive the education they need to become competent nurses prepared to care for clients in various healthcare settings.
State-of-the-art ASN Simulation Training at the Atlanta Campus
“Incorporating high-quality fidelity simulation education into our nursing curriculum was a top priority when designing the labs for our ASN program in Atlanta. Our educational experience aligns with the Department of Education’s (2017) position to recommend nursing students’ education include simulation. Furthermore, their research indicated that nursing students who participate in education programs involving simulations make fewer medical errors in clinical settings and are more likely to develop critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills,” stated Tara Stephen, MSN-Ed, RN, PHN, ASN Program Dean.
Our nursing faculty have designed a simulation lab with state-of-the-art patient simulators for an immersive learning experience to equip our students to develop the skills and competencies to be excellent nurse clinicians. Each student will participate in faculty-led Standardized simulation patient scenarios threaded throughout our unique concept-based curriculum. Every simulation experience allows the student to practice hands-on assessment skills, teamwork, and communication while interacting with lifelike simulation mannikins across the lifespan from newborn to older adult. Our simulation lab allows our students to encounter a diverse patient population systematically, which is representative of the actual patient population in their future work environments.
ASN Atlanta State of the Art Simulation Lab Suite
The nursing simulation laboratory clinical learning opportunities include:
- Adult Medical/Surgical
- Critical care
- Home Health
- Health assessment/Skills labs
Various fidelities of human patient simulators, in which students encounter patient situations with symptoms, diseases, and conditions expected in a traditional clinical setting.
Students’ experiences in the lab include the utilization of some of the most current technology in healthcare settings, including:
- IV pumps
- EKG machine
- Medication carts
- Age-specific crash carts
- Electronic Health Record
- Defibrillators (CPR manikin with feedback)
The nursing simulation lab also has control rooms adjacent to the lab. This room is for the observation and recording of clinical simulations, which are utilized for reflection and debriefing of simulations.
