Registered nurses with an associate degree are skilled health care providers who administer nursing care directly to patients and their families in a variety of settings.

The Associate Degree program at MATC provides a bridge from being a licensed practical nurse to becoming a professional nurse through courses and clinical practice. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

This program aligns with the Kansas Board of Regents curriculum.
