Military to RN Pathway Program Description
The Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Military to RN Pathway will capitalize on the preparation and the experiences of military service members and veterans who served as Army Combat Medics, Navy Corpsmen or Air Force Medics.  The program serves as a basis for direct articulation into baccalaureate education in furtherance of the Maryland Board of Nursing’s Articulation Mode, which has the goal to minimize the barriers to educational advancement for nurses and encourage nurses to reach the highest possible level of education.  Graduates of the program will be able to initiate, maintain, and evaluate the collaborative relationship with health care team members and clients in acute, long-term and community settings to promote wellness and disease prevention;  integrate knowledge of pathophysiology in the application of the nursing process; demonstrate a holistic approach to the practice of nursing, considering physical, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual factors and promote continuity of care; and integrate caring integrity, safe practice, and accountability in practicing the art and science of nursing.
