Professional Nursing Associate's Degree
The Rasmussen College Professional Nursing Associate's degree program is the path to a career as a registered nurse. Courses are taught by an experienced faculty of nurses in small class sizes with built‐in simulation experiences in nursing labs and a variety of clinical opportunities. In addition, the Rasmussen College School of Nursing provides a variety of resources aimed at preparing students for the NCLEX-RN exam.

LPN students can transfer credits from previous academic and work experience, allowing them to more efficiently advance their career.

"This is an exciting time for the Rasmussen College School of Nursing and for students located near our Kansas campuses that are eager to start their career as a registered nurse," said Dr. Dana Bush, dean of nursing at the Rasmussen College Kansas City/Overland Park and Topeka campuses.
