ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing curriculum provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to care for patients of every age and in various settings. Graduates of this program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), which is required for practice as a Registered Nurse. Employment opportunities include a wide variety of health care settings such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, physicians’ offices, industry, and community health agencies.
Individuals who have a current NC LPN license or 2000 hours as a NC certified paramedic may challenge the first course of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Upon scoring a Level 2 on the ATI Fundamentals examination and with successful completion of specific clinical skills, the student will be placed into the second semester of the ADN program. Please see entry checklist.
• All other transfer students must meet with the registrar and Director of Nursing Program to determine eligibility.
