ADN Program Details
The ADN program teaches you skills of direct patient care that you can apply in any healthcare setting. It offers theoretical and applied instruction in classrooms, simulated laboratories, and clinical settings. It integrates education in adult, gerontological, obstetric, pediatric, and psychiatric-mental health nursing. Your clinical learning will take place in diverse types of institutions. Entry level courses in leadership teach you to direct and supervise ancillary personnel. The program allows a practical nursing exit point (certificate). After successfully completing the first two semesters of the program, students are eligible to write the Practical Nursing National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN). At this point, students could exit and seek employment as LPNs or continue on in the remaining two semesters and prepare to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). After completing all requirements, you will receive the AAS degree. Successful performance on the (NCLEX-RN) awards state licensure and qualifies you for the title of Registered Nurse (RN).
