ADN Program Details
The Department of Nursing provides an associate degree education for qualified individuals who wish to provide direct patient care as members of the health care delivery system. The Associate in Nursing Program is approved by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing for Accrediting Commission. Graduates are eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) to receive licensure as a registered nurse (RN).
BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) Program is designed to provide registered nurses with an opportunity to broaden their career pathways. Students enrolled in the program will sharpen their critical thinking skills, develop their supervisory and communication abilities, strengthen their leadership potential-and ultimately increase their eligibility for supervisory and management positions in the nursing field. The degree also prepares students for graduate-level study that, upon completion, can lead to employment as nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, and nursing faculty member or administrators. Associate RNs must complete 45+ hours of additional course work to graduate from the RN to BSN program. Those who have completed all pre-requisite courses can complete the program in three semesters.
