Associate in Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.)

 

The Associate in Applied Science Degree is a technical degree designed to prepare the student in a specific
occupational area. Persons receiving the AAS normally enter directly into employment in the area of
specialization. The AAS is a terminal degree; therefore, it is not designed to transfer to a four-year institution.
In most cases, students to whom transfer is important should obtain assurances in advance from the
institution to which they wish to transfer.


The AAS degree requires successful completion of one of the prescribed curricula that appear on the
following pages. This will include the completion of the number of hours specified in that curriculum with a
minimum grade point average of 2.00. The last 15 hours of regular course work (excludes credit by
examination, independent study, and CLEP credit) must be completed at the College unless a student has
completed 30 or more credit hours at Arkansas Northeastern College. In that case, an exception may be
granted upon the recommendation of the Petitions Committee and the approval of the Vice President of
Instruction.


A minimum of 15 additional hours of specified course work must be completed for a student to receive a
second Associate degree. The 15 hours must be selected from the major requirements for the second
degree and be approved by the appropriate Dean.


Students who plan to complete graduation requirements at the end of any given semester must file an
application for graduation with the Registrar’s Office no later than the end of the sixth week of that semester.


* Note: Students must earn a “C” or better in English Composition I, English Composition II, and the math
requirement to receive an Associate in Applied Science Degree from ANC.

Associate of Applied Science Degree

Aviation Maintenance

This program is designed for students who intend to pursue careers not only in the aviation maintenance
industry, but in other industries utilizing aircraft maintenance skills in hi-tech maintenance programs. The
general education components prepare students to pursue baccalaureate studies, and advance to positions
of leadership in the industry. Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to take the
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification exams for Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Mechanics.
This program is approved by the FAA, which requires that every single hour of instruction be given to each
student. Because of this requirement and the vital importance of mechanical performance, class attendance
is an absolute must to remain in good standing in the program. Failure to attend the classes in accordance
with instructor-established guidelines may result in dismissal from the program. The program is divided into
four separate segments: general education, general aviation, airframe, and powerplant. The general
education core may be taken at any time before, during, or after the other segments are taken, depending on
scheduling preferences. The remaining segments are taken sequentially in an intensive combination of
lecture and laboratory learning. Students may be required to attend classes as many as 30 clock hours per
week. Consult with your advisor each semester to determine an appropriate schedule.

Associate in Applied Science Degree

Nursing  [ go to Associate Degree Nursing page ]

Arkansas Northeastern College offers an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing. The registered nursing program is approved by the Arkansas State Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc., (NLNAC). One traditional class is admitted annually in the fall semester with the LPN to RN Students accepted into the program joining the class in January of the Spring Semester each year. Throughout the program, general education courses and nursing courses are combined with client care in clinical settings in hospitals and health care agencies in the area. The nursing courses integrate application of the nursing process, communication skills, nutrition, pharmacology, and drug administration in care of clients. Legal/ethical responsibilities and current trends in health care are also integrated. The nursing courses are competency-based, and students are responsible for achieving certain competencies under specified conditions.

 

Students will be required to complete standardized tests throughout the nursing curriculum and to earn acceptable scores on such examinations to progress through curriculum. In the last semester of the nursing curriculum, students will be required to earn a satisfactory score on a comprehensive exam. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is granted the Associate in Applied Science Degree and may be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for licensure as a Registered Nurse. Persons convicted of a crime may not be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN for licensure. See the program director for details.


Admission to Arkansas Northeastern College is not automatic admission to the nursing program. Traditional Students must score 100 or greater on the PAX-RN Exam, have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and successfully complete all prerequisite courses. A grade of “C” or above is required in all academic courses required for the nursing degree. LPN to RN Students must meet admission requirements as outlined in the LPN to RN Transition Course First Day Handout. The department has a selective admission policy, and students are referred to the Associate Degree Nursing Information Guidelines or should contact the Nursing Department concerning admission and graduation requirements.
