- 0Jan 16, '08 by happy_bunny_101Hi I am Amanda and I am in high school planning on being an ER nurse and my frist step is to be a RN. I am pretty sure I am going for the Associates degree and all I found were technical colleges? is that right?
I don't really know if that is but hope you can answer my questions?
- 0Jan 16, '08 by TheCommuter, ASN, RN Senior Moderator70 percent of all RNs in the US are educated at the associate degree level, and the vast majority of these associate degrees in nursing were earned at local community colleges.
Community colleges most commonly offer the associates degree in nursing. Other institutions that offer the associates degree (ADN) include technical colleges, trade schools, and some state universities.
