ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing program is designed to provide an educational opportunity in which students:

Under the direct supervision of qualified instructors, you will experience patient interactions, which foster caring and empathetic approaches to nursing care.
During the second level of your program, you will focus on specialty areas such as pediatric and psychiatric nursing.
