ADN Program Details
Graduates of this program earn an Associate in Science (AS) Degree and are eligible to take the licensing exam to become registered nurses (RNs). Responsibilities of the RN include: full responsibility for the quality of nursing care provided to individuals and groups; health maintenance, teaching, counseling, collaborative planning and restoration of optimal functioning and comfort; and appropriate delegation of selected nursing activities to other RNs and/or health care personnel, including practical nurses and nursing assistants in a variety of health care settings. Primary employers include hospitals, long-term-care facilities, and community health agencies.
Applicants need to know that individuals with a record of conviction by a Court of Law will be required to provide a complete explanation to the Board of Registration in Nursing in order to be permitted to take the licensing examination (NCLEX) after graduation. GCC requires that students meet the requirements of a CORI (Criminal Offenders Record Information) check before entry and every six months. Students who fail to meet the CORI requirements will not be able to begin or continue in the program.
