Associate Degree Nursing is a program that prepares the graduate as a generalist capable of providing competent, accountable client care in diverse settings. The graduate utilizes skills in critical thinking, relationship, care management, primary care, and community to function as a provider of care, manager of care, and member of a profession. Health promotion, disease prevention, and health protection, across the lifespan, are integrated throughout the curriculum. Major areas of emphasis encompass the following core components of nursing practice: professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration, and managing care. Two options are available: the Generic Option and the Transition to RN Option.
Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®.). Licensing of registered nurses is regulated by the Mississippi Board of Nursing. Conviction of a misdemeanor or felony offense may be grounds for refusal by the Board to issue a license.
