ADN Program Details
Many nurses of both genders get their start in our associate degree program. With a two- or three-year commitment, you can have the strength of a St. Kate’s education and our excellent reputation to back you in obtaining a job as a registered nurse. An associate degree also can be a stepping stone to a bachelor’s degree as you progress in your career.
