ADN Program Details

The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program at RCC is designed to prepare the students to assume the role of a professional nurse in a variety of clinical settings. At the completion of the ADN program, students will be able to integrate legal, ethical and professional values with their nursing skills as they apply the nursing process to patient care.

Upon satisfactory completion of this program, the student will be eligible to apply to take the examination required for licensure as a registered nurse (RN).

To be accepted into the ADN program, the student must follow the application process below. Acceptance into the ADN program is selective due to the limited number of clinical placements available. This application does not guarantee acceptance into the ADN program. Applicants must reapply for the program each year, if not selected for the fall term indicated.
