ADN Program Details
Moraine Valley Community College’s Nursing Program prepares students for a nursing career in hospitals and other health care settings.
Students learn to deliver nursing care to people of all ages using principles of the biological, physical and behavioral sciences, plus study how to assess nursing care needs of patients and how to make judgments in planning, implementing and evaluating appropriate nursing care.
This two-year program starts in either the fall or spring of each year and continues for a total of four consecutive semesters, excluding summer. The Nursing Program conducts a rigorous curriculum of lectures, labs and clinicals. Clinicals are conducted on site at a variety of hospitals during the day time or evening with no flexibility in scheduling. Therefore, holding a full-time job while in the program may affect student success and is not recommended. However, general education classes are available morning, afternoon or evening, and can be completed part-time, if necessary.
The additional expenses a nursing student will incur include: uniforms, liability health insurance and current CPR certification.
This program is intended to lead to employment. Students considering transferring to a four-year college or university using the courses from this program should make an appointment with an academic advisor to review options. Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (B.S.N.) completion programs usually accept Associate degree in nursing (A.D.N.) graduates. Students should check specific admission guidelines for the schools under consideration.
