I am a clinical instructor in the community college in Saudi Arabia. We have program for Associated Nursing (Diploma Degree) and the college wants to close this program because they said that Associate Nurses are not recognized worldwide.
1-Do you think Associated Nursing should be closed and why?
2- what is the % of associated nurses compare to registered nurses in USA?
3- Do Associated nurses allowed to work in USA hospital?
4- what is the different between Associated Nurses and Registered Nurses?
5- do you still have programs for Associated Nursing in USA?
Looking forward your comments
