Welcome Message from Erika

Dear Prospective Nursing Students:

Aims Community College is a "learning-centered" institution. Students are expected to be active participants in the learning process, which will lead to educational success. The nursing faculty members are committed and eager to guide and assist as needed.

A commitment to excellence is expected in the nursing profession and students in the Aims Community College Nursing Program are required to demonstrate this commitment throughout the educational process. Students are challenged every step of the way. The nursing curriculum is rigorous; the theory, campus laboratory, and clinical experiences are designed to provide students with the necessary foundation to practice as a registered nurse. It will be necessary to pay attention to detail, follow directions regarding assignments and set aside an appropriate amount of time for reading, study and comprehension of the complex material under study.

Please take some time and browse the Nursing website. If after viewing the website Nursing sounds like a program of study in which you are interested, you are required to view the “Aims Community College Associate Degree Nursing Program Online Orientation” and follow the instructions outlined in the orientation presentation.

Best wishes in your educational endeavors!

Erika Greenberg, MSN, R.N.
Interim Director of Nursing Education Program
