Registered nurses (RNs) record patients' medical histories and symptoms as well as help perform diagnostic tests and analyze results. They also operate medical machinery, administer treatment and medications, and help with patient follow-up and rehabilitation. Some nurses may work to promote general health by educating the public on warning signs and symptoms of disease. RNs may also run general health screenings or immunization clinics, blood drives and public seminars on various conditions.
Gateway Technical College’s Nursing associate degree program is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing and includes classroom instruction and supervised clinical experiences in local hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The degree program is offered at the Kenosha and Burlington Campuses but students can also take classes online. Courses include anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, psychology and other behavioral sciences.
