ADN Program Details
The Associate of Science in Nursing program is designed to accommodate two groups of students: those who are entering a nursing program for the first time and those Licensed Practical Nurses or certified Paramedics seeking educational mobility to the associate-degree level. As a graduate of the ASN Program, you will be eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN examination to become Registered Nurses. You may seek immediate employment as Nurses or choose to transfer your credits to a four-year institution offering a baccalaureate degree.
Students are encouraged to review their options with their advisors, to consult the current catalog of the institution to which they wish to transfer, and to contact the institution to which they wish to transfer. Students may also contact the transfer office of their local Ivy Tech for further information.
The nursing program is a selective program. When you apply to the college, you will be accepted into the undeclared program while you complete the prerequisite requirements. The nursing program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process.
