ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing Department at Mt. San Antonio College, approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, is a two-year program designed to prepare individuals at the Associate Degree level for entry into the practice of registered nursing. The Licensed Vocational Nurse and Psychiatric Technician are provided career mobility in the nursing program and are eligible to pursue advanced placement into the degree track earning an Associate in Science Degree in Nursing.
Nurses are versatile and unique healthcare providers who are essential to the day-to-day delivery of healthcare. They diagnose and address a wide range of health and illness-related human responses. Nursing is a strong and respected profession, grounded in science and guided by a code of ethics.
Nursing graduates have the opportunity to work in a myriad of settings: clinics, hospitals, schools and community-based health organizations such as home healthcare and hospice. They can choose to work with any age group and can select to assist individuals who are critically ill, those who have acute or chronic illnesses or even those who are healthy and want to stay that way.
Basic nursing education takes place in diploma, associate degree, baccalaureate or advanced degree programs. Successful completion confers the right to sit for the registered nurse licensure examination. Many nurses pursue advanced education such as specialty certification and master's and doctoral degrees.
