ADN Program Details
The Associates Degree in Science with a major in Nursing prepares students for licensure as a registered nurse. The program combines general education courses with nursing courses. Nursing students must earn a minimum grade of C in Anatomy and Physiology I and II and in Microbiology for successful transfer of science into the nursing program courses.
Graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, (NCLEX-RN). A GPA of 2.0 in nursing courses and a satisfactory rating in clinical components is necessary for students to complete the nursing program. At the completion of the nursing program graduates will be able to effectively utilize nursing processes, critical thinking, effective teaching techniques, excellent communication skills, and practice within the ethical and legal standards necessary and be able to care for people of all ages and in a variety of settings.
Due to the highly competitive nature of the Nursing program at LRCC, students interested in preparing for admission to the program are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a counselor for assistance with the admissions process. Advising for preparation for applying for admission is available by contacting either College Counselor, Jeff Murray or Director of Admissions, Wayne Fraser. Mr. Murray can be reached at (603) 524-3207 ext. 6718 or email@example.com. Mr. Fraser can be reached at (603) 524-3207 ext. 6766 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This program follows the NH Board of Nursing standards for student to faculty ratio (8:1). Selection is determined by a cumulative point system that is based on high school level prerequisite courses and grades, college courses and the NLN score. Transfer credits will depend on course content, applicability to the nursing program, grade earned and length of time since completion.
Three program options exist: a traditional two year (option) program of study; a one year (option) program for nurses who have successfully completed an LPN program, offered only when space is available; and a 12 month (May to May) Paramedic to RN option. At present there is an evening clinical available for eight students.
