ADN Program Details
The Nursing Department (Accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. [NLNAC*] and registered by the New York State Education Department) offers a program that prepares students to become members of the health team, qualified to render effective nursing care in health service agencies and hospitals.
The program combines classroom work with observation and practice in actual health care facilities. In addition, students are trained to become competent nurses who assist those persons that are responsible for facilitating the maintenance of health, the improvement of health status, the prevention of illness, and the alleviation of suffering.
Upon successful completion of 65 credits, the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree is granted and students are eligible to take the New York State Licensure Examination for Registered Nurse (RN). Additionally, to qualify for a license as a registered professional nurse, applicants must be of good moral character and at least eighteen years of age. All applicants who have been found guilty of a crime and/or have pending criminal charges (felony or misdemeanor) must submit a letter to the Office of the Professions of New York State giving complete explanation. The applicant’s eligibility for licensure will then be determined.
