ADN Program Details
In our two-year nursing program, you’ll study in the classroom and combine technology to learn about a variety of nursing specialties. Specialties such as medical-surgical, maternal-child, psychiatric, surgical, community and home health care nursing. You’ll also get hands-on experience, caring for patients at several of the health care facilities in the region, and learning on our new computerized mannequins.
Once you get your degree, you’ll be ready to take the national exam to become a licensed, registered nurse. With your RN license you’ll be ready for one of the many nursing jobs available. You could work at a hospital, a nursing home or a community agency. You can also go beyond to further your education and get your bachelor’s, or master’s degree as a nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, or educator in nursing.
The Associate of Science in Nursing degree program is fully approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). ASN graduates are required to take the national examination for registered nurse licensure. A person with criminal convictions may be prohibited from licensure as a registered nurse by the boards of nursing in various states. Prospective students in that situation should call the board of nursing in the state where they plan to practice.
