ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Upon completion of the two year, five semester program the graduate will be able to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) administered by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be a Registered Nurse.
The program prepares the graduate to provide patient-centered care, patient safety advocate, member of the profession and member of the health care team for a limited number of patients in various health care settings. Such patients may have complex multiple needs with predictable or unpredictable outcomes. With additional experience and continuing education the graduate can increase the numbers of assigned patients, provide independent patient-centered care, supervise health care of patients and their families and receive certification in various specialty areas.
Students seeking entry in the Associate Degree Nursing Program (ADN) must attend a general advisement session, must meet Admission Assessment (A2) exam requirements before being allowed to register for the Introduction to Nursing course, complete the Introduction to Nursing course with a grade of B or better (traditional track only) and complete an application for consideration for the program. Students must see an ADN faculty advisor during the Fall.
