ADN Program Details
Midway College offers the Associate of Science degree in Nursing. In the Women's College there is a day format and in the School for Career Development, an accelerated evening format offered at the Main Campus. A student who successfully completes the program is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Successful completion of this examination allows the graduate to practice nursing as a registered nurse (RN).
The Associate Degree Nursing Program at Midway College is fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc (NLNAC). The curriculum for this nursing major has a dual focus--team-taught classroom theory emphasizing the technical and theoretical aspects of nursing, and concentrated, supervised, clinical laboratory experiences in several health-care agencies in central Kentucky.
The Associate Degree Nursing Program prepares students to become registered nurses and also qualifies those students for admission into a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program. Because the associate degree program emphasizes the importance of nursing classroom theory and clinical experiences, as well as liberal arts courses, each student is reminded that the nursing major places great responsibilities for time management upon the individual. The nursing courses must be taken in the following sequence, NSG 115, NSG 120, NSG 210, NSG 225, and 230 and a grade of "C" must be earned in each before progressing to the next level.
Students will be required to take nationally-normed tests throughout the curriculum and to make a satisfactory score on such tests. In the last semester of the curriculum, students will be required to take a comprehensive exam and to make a satisfactory score on such an exam prior to graduation/taking the licensing exam.
Admission to the program is selective. The Midway College student desiring to enter a career in nursing should be aware that a certain educational background or preparation is important to assure admission to the nursing program. A student who is interested in pursuing a major in nursing, but who lacks the necessary academic preparation, may wish to consider taking preparatory courses under the guidance of individual academic advisors.
The applications for admission are received in the nursing office during the spring semester for possible admission to the fall semester. Nursing faculty utilize an admission process procedure when reviewing all applications.
RN to BSN Program Details
The Midway College Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is designed for working registered nurses. Students entering the RN-BSN degree program are RNs who have previously earned either an associate degree or diploma in nursing and have a current Kentucky RN license. This program consists of the upper division level course work necessary to complete the baccalaureate degree in 12 months in a blended format, with many of the courses offered online and limited on campus instruction days and courses.
For acceptance into the RN-BSN program the student must meet the following criteria:
1. Complete application for admission to the college (unless continuing directly from the Midway Campus ADN program.)

This is a college requirement. Cost of the NLN Acceleration Challenge Exam is the responsibility of the student.
