Nurses make unique and distinct contributions to the healthcare system and to society as a whole. The goal of nursing care is to address human needs across the lifespan, and to promote, protect, maintain, and restore health and human dignity. Nurses act as compassionate providers of care. They are leaders, educators, and counselors. PTC has created an Associate in Science, Nursing, to educate the next generation of America’s caregivers.Learn More
