The nursing education component of Area L AHEC offers individually tailored, on-site education programs at each of the area hospitals. Additionally, guest faculty present programs for all nursing professionals in the area through regularly scheduled regional programs. These programs are developed based on specific needs identified both during on-site assessment, and through the assistance of Area L AHEC’s Nursing Education Advisory Committee.

 

As an integral part of its mission, each of the nine AHEC centers is committed to promoting educational mobility for all nurses. North Carolina continues to require more nurses prepared at the baccalaureate level and above. AHEC-sponsored off-campus degree programs provide flexible options for working nurses who wish to advance from RN to the BSN or MSN level. Additionally, the state’s need for advanced practice nurses continues to increase making accessibility of these programs even more important. For more information on educational mobility options for NC nurses visit the College Foundation of North Carolina Web site.

 

Area L AHEC is approved as a provider of continuing education in nursing by the North Carolina Nurses ‘Association, which is accredited as an approver of continuing education in nursing by the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
