ADN Program Details
The associate of applied science degree with specialization in nursing prepares graduates to function as beginning registered nurse practitioners and members of the health care team in the care of acutely and chronically ill individuals with common illnesses. Registered nurses are qualified for employment in structured practice settings, including acute care hospitals, extended care facilities, nursing homes, clinics and physicians’ offices. With experience, nurses may also participate in providing skilled care in more specialized areas including psychiatric units, emergency departments, pediatric and obstetric units, critical care units and home health settings. Jobs in all areas of nursing are plentiful.
Upon program completion and eligibility determination by the Michigan State Board of Nursing, graduates will be prepared to take the licensure exam to become a registered nurse.
This nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and is approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing. Graduates may transfer all or part of the credit earned at MCCC to several colleges and universities to pursue a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN).
