ADN Program Details
The Cerritos College Nursing Program, approved by the Board of Registered Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc, offers an opportunity to prepare for a nursing career through mastery of a specific body of knowledge and skills. For successful completion of the nursing program, the student is required to achieve a minimum 75% in all nursing and nursing-related courses. This is consistent with the Board of Registered Nursing’s standard of competency for nursing practice. Completion of the program meets qualifications for the NCLEX-RN licensing exam.
The core nursing program consists of sequenced courses over a four-semester period. Prerequisite courses are completed prior to these four semesters. In addition, general education courses are required for completion of the Associate in Arts Degree in Nursing (Associate Degree in Nursing – ADN). Some students may need to take additional courses to meet English, reading and mathematics requirements.
