ADN Program Details
The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program is to prepare an associate degree nurse who is capable of effective use of the nursing process in providing care to one or a group of individuals in order to promote health and manage health problems. The associate degree nurse functions as a team member to meet the diverse needs of individuals, families and communities in a dynamic healthcare environment.
The program is evaluated by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc. which has awarded its full accreditation to Lewis and Clark’s program. The program also has agency membership in the National League for Nursing and is approved by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program can be completed in two years. The program includes classroom, lab, simulation instruction, and clinical experience each semester in acute care settings, extended care facilities, and community health care agencies. Transportation to clinical agencies is the responsibility of the student.
Upon graduation from the program, an Associate in Applied Science degree is awarded and the graduate is eligible to apply for the NCLEX-RN for licensing. Graduates passing the exam are then able to apply for a license to practice as a registered nurse.
