Mission of the Nursing Program

The Community College of Rhode Island is the state's only practical nursing program and associate degree nursing program.  We provide students with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for intellectual, professional and personal growth within the nursing program.  Building upon a rich tradition of teaching excellence and high academic and collegial standards, our diverse faculty and staff are devoted to fostering creativity, critical thinking skills and competencies in nursing practice.  Our high academic standards, while necessary for career success, are responsive to needs of the community, the state of Rhode Island, and the profession of Nursing.
