Should an RN get a Associates of Arts of Associates in Science?
Typically the associates degree for nursing is an associates in science not an arts degree. This is because of the practical training involved that leads to the entry level positions. Personally, I have never been made aware of an associate of arts in nursing. Now, there may be a possibility that some school decides to do a curriculum layout which leaves out the professional phase courses and includes the prerequisite courses needed for transfer to a four year college or university. Still ,I have not seen this. If your intention is to work out in the field after completion of the associates, then make sure it is the associates in science (AS). I would also advise you check with the career counselor at the college. He/she should be able to direct you appropriately.
