ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing program prepares men and women to function effectively as registered nurses in a health care team. Nursing theory is integrated with supportive courses from the humanities, mathematics, biological and behavioral sciences.
Day and limited evening classes are available. Enrollment in the major courses begins in the Fall and Spring terms. Four semesters and a Summer Term are required to complete the degree. Nursing courses build on each preceding course and must be taken in sequence. General Education courses are offered both day and evening and can be completed as outlined in the curriculum guide. Readmission and progression criteria in the Associate Degree Nursing program are different from those of the College as a whole. Completion of required nursing courses within three years of entry into the first nursing course must be attained or competency (didactic, skill, math) must be demonstrated.
Completion of Nursing Assistant training is a prerequisite to Nursing 101-Fundamentals of Nursing. This requirement can be satisfied with the AHS 117-Patient Care Course, the Nurse Aide Certificate course, completion within Health Science Technology Core, or work experience with department head approval.
