Your Role as a Registered Nurse

Registered Nurses have increased responsibilities and work under the direction of a Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant. RNs are responsible for assessing a patient’s condition, recording the patient medical history and symptoms, and observing the patient’s condition and recording those observations. RNs are also responsible for setting up patient care plans, administering patient medications and treatments, assisting in patient diagnostic tests, and analyzing test results. One of the most important functions of an RN is to consult with doctors and other healthcare professionals to effectively educate patients on how to manage their care at home after their medical treatment. RNs play a crucial role in patient care and family support during times of medical crisis.

The Taylor College Advantage

  • Clinical Training​

    At Taylor College, our focus is on your success. Employment is the goal. The 24 month Professional Nursing program includes 495 hours of clinical training. Beginning in your third semester and continuing through the end of your program, you'll spend approximately 12 weeks per semester working onsite in actual medical facilities. During this special training you will have an opportunity to shadow a qualified professional and apply the skills you've learned during your campus labs, class lectures/discussions.

  • Fully Equipped Labs​

    The skills training in the Professional Nursing program requires hands-on practice and repetition to master. Thanks to new and continually advancing technology, modern manikins have been developed that are equipped for a wide variety of patient care and monitoring, allowing for more learning opportunities than ever before. In this program, Taylor College utilizes three modern manikins in classroom training, including a specialized maternal birthing simulator.

    Utilizing manikins in healthcare training provides our students with the opportunity to repeat specific tasks until they are mastered. This allows for a personalized education experience for each student that can be completed at their own pace. By encountering various issues and outcomes, students learn to analyze the facts to make proper assessments. Through practice and repetition, students gain valuable confidence needed to enter the workforce.

  • Extra Lab Availability

    The Professional Nursing program offers lab time by appointment that is fully staffed with instructors for students who are interested in, or may need, additional training on specific skills.

  • Bridge Entry Option into the Professional Nursing Program

    A student who is currently licensed and practicing as a Licensed Practical Nurse whose license is clear of any disciplinary or administrative action will have his/her credentials reviewed. When the licensing credentials have been approved, a nursing skills test will be given. If the skills test is performed successfully without assistance from the examiner, the student course requirements for NUR1030 Fundamental of Nursing I and NUR1035C Fundamentals of Nursing II will be waived. A "Course Waived - CW" grade will appear on the student's transcript. If the student fails the nursing skills test, the student will be required to take the NUR1035C Fundamentals of Nursing II course. Graduates of Taylor College Practical Nursing Program are exempt from the skills test.

  • Qualified Instructors

    Taylor's course instructors, lab instructors, and clinical instructors are Registered Nurses and are required to have at least 3 years of nursing experience. In addition, fulltime instructors teaching Professional Nursing program courses have a minimum of a Master of Science in Nursing degree.
