ADN Program Details
Registered nurses are health care professionals who practice in a variety of settings, manage the care of clients, and foster optimal health states in individuals and groups. RNs use the nursing process to assess and analyze the health needs and/or problems of clients, plan and implement appropriate actions based upon nursing diagnosis or identified client needs, and evaluate the extent to which expected outcomes are achieved. RNs are educated and licensed to make clinical decisions that emphasize health promotion and disease prevention. RNs work in many different practice areas: labor and delivery, pediatrics, mental health, disaster nursing, medical and surgical units, emergency rooms, long-term care, and critical care units.
The most economical way to be educated as an RN is through the two-year Nursing (RN) Program.

Close to 90 percent of Prince George's Community College’s RN graduates pass NCLEX-RN on the first attempt. Successful completion of the exam is required to practice nursing.
