Program Overview:

The College of Southern Idaho (CSI) Associate of Science in Nursing Program (ASNP) provides a high quality and affordable education to students of Southern Idaho and beyond. We create a welcoming environment that is responsive to students and emphasizes their active role in the learning process. Learning is a continuum where students rely on knowledge gained in previous non-nursing and nursing courses to facilitate understanding and application of information. The curriculum fosters learning opportunities that promote critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and clinical judgement to prepare graduates for entry-level practice as a professional nurse in today’s complex health care system. The program admits students during both fall and spring semester. Courses are delivered face-to-face and hybrid with clinical experiences offered in the simulation lab and a variety of off-campus health care settings.

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate is core certified and receives an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree. The graduate qualifies to make application to a state board of nursing to sit for the NCLEX-RN examination. Passing the NCLEX-RN examination enables the RN to practice in the state where the exam was taken and the opportunity to transition into a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.
