ADN Program Details
The Associate of Science in Nursing requires two academic years of full-time study and is articulated with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program which requires the equivalent of two years of either full-time or part-time study. The first two years provide academic and clinical nursing experience. At the completion of the two years, students are eligible to sit for the Registered Nurse Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), and are prepared as beginning practitioners in nursing to give direct care to patients with health problems in supervised settings.
RN to BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing emphasizes the important managerial, supervisory and community focused nursing care skills necessary for successful career development and growth, or preparation for graduate studies.
After completing the ASN program, Gwynedd-Mercy graduates readily move into the BSN program. Other licensed RNs may transfer to GMC for upper level courses to complete their BSN. The college maintains dual admission agreements with area community colleges. All credits appropriate to the BSN program are transferred and students enter the BSN program at the junior level. The College also honors portfolio credits for work experience in a select list of nursing courses within the BSN program.
Full or part-time study in the day or evening and flexible clinical experiences are available. A nursing faculty member will assist in program planning.
MSN Program Details
The Master of Science in Nursing program prepares professional nurses for advanced practice as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) (with concentrations in gerontology or oncology), Nurse Practitioner (NP) (with specializations in adult health or pediatric health), or Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) (which serves as a basis for doctoral study). A 25-credit Post-MSN certification program to become a Nurse Practitioner is also available.
