ADN Program Details
The program's main objective is to equip our students with the most current knowledge and skills needed to meet the prevention, health maintenance, health promotion and restorative needs of the client. Students are taught the art and science of nursing with a focus on the application of theory to clinical practice.
In as little as 17 months a student can earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Health Science with a major in Registered Nursing. This qualifies the student to take the RN-NCLEX exam through the State Board of Nursing. A student who passes the exam is then licensed to practice as a registered nurse.
Registered nurses are in demand across multiple settings including:
Intermediate- and Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation
Primary Care Clinics
Outpatient Care Centers
HMO/Insurance/Managed Care Facilities
Mental Health Agencies
Military and Industry
