ADN Program Details
The Foothills Nursing Consortium is defined as a cooperative effort by Cleveland Community College, Isothermal Community College, and McDowell Technical Community College, to form one unit for the purpose of providing education for Associate Degree Nursing students through joint support and operation of a nursing education program.
The purposes of the Foothills Nursing Consortium Associate Degree Nursing Program are four fold:
-The program will produce a maximum number of nursing graduates annually to meet the needs of the area health care facilities.
-The program will provide accessibility for area residents to a registered nursing education program, which requires a minimum investment of both time and expense.
-The program will provide the necessary educational opportunities for LPNs to achieve RN status and still remain in the work force.
-By producing more qualified intermediate level health care workers, the program will help to improve the present health care delivery system and increase the availability of adequate health care to area residents.
