ADN Program Details
The Nursing Program prepares individuals to be providers and managers of nursing care and members of the nursing discipline. Graduates use a clinical decision making process to provide care to diverse individuals across the life-span.
Following acceptance into a nursing class, the day program includes a sequence of four clinical courses that can be completed in two academic years. A new day class is accepted each fall. The night program includes five clinical courses and takes two and one-half years to complete. New night classes are accepted every other year. The next class is fall 2009. A minimum grade of “C” must be earned in all courses included in the summary of required hours. Contact the Nursing Program office or nursing web site for detailed information on program policies (Nursing Program Handbook) or for information about admission, readmission, transfer from an accredited nursing program, and articulation with baccalaureate programs.
