About AIAM School of Nursing:

AIAM offers both a Registered Nursing, and Practical Nursing Program.

The AIAM Department of Nursing provides quality nursing education based in holistic nursing philosophy in Central Ohio and to facilitate the provision of exceptional health care in the region.

Nursing is advancing into a new era of expanding roles, responsibilities and functions in primary, secondary, and tertiary preventions and institutions. Faculty is responsible for the preparation of professional nurses who can assume current nursing roles and adapt to future health needs and evolving health care requirements. Thus, professional nursing education requires a flexible outcome—directed curriculum that emphasizes a whole person approach and is based on evolving nursing theory and knowledge from the sciences and other related disciplines.

About the Registered Nursing (RN) Programs:

AIAM offers TWO programs for Registered Nursing to match with your skill level; Registered Nursing and Advanced Placement Registered Nursing.

AIAM’s RN program is 24 months and requires no previous nursing experience and prepares the graduate to provide direct care to clients with common health problems in a variety of settings.

AIAM offers a 15 Month Advanced Placement RN option for students who have previously graduated from an approved Practical Nursing program. This program is the perfect way to advance your nursing career!

The program is grounded in a holistic nursing philosophy that incorporates knowledge from nursing, humanities and sciences along with a strong emphasis on psychomotor skills. The curriculum includes an emphasis on critical thinking, decision making, delegation and care management skills in the acute, intermediate, chronic and community care areas. Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing and are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam.
