ADN Program Details
The R.N. program prepares graduates to function as entry-level nurses by emphasizing educational competencies within eight core components of nursing practice: professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration, and managing care. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN). The program is directly articulated with a number of higher education nursing programs, thus providing an educational foundation for further study in nursing.
The program is approved by the Maryland State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (61 Broadway – 33rd floor, New York, NY, 10006, phone 800-669-1656, www.nlac.org). The nursing program has specific objectives that correlate with the College’s educational goals.
