ADN Program Details
WNC's Associate Degree Nursing Program is intended for students seeking careers as a registered nurse. The curriculum is sequenced and progresses in complexity. It integrates knowledge from the bio/social sciences, humanities, and is intended to prepare graduates to pass the national licensure examination (NCLEX-RN) and to function as registered nurses in diverse care settings. Upon completion of the Associate Degree Nursing Program, students will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree. Graduates are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN.
The nursing program is approved by the Nevada State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 500, Atlanta, GA 30326, ph: 404-975-5000. Applicants are advised that eligibility for licensure may be affected by the existence of a criminal record, a history of alcohol or drug abuse, and mental or physical illness that may interfere with the practice of nursing. Applicants are encouraged to directly contact the Nevada State Board of Nursing at 1-775-687-7700 or 888-590-6726 should there be a concern regarding eligibility for licensure.
A limited number of qualified students are admitted as first semester students utilizing the selection criteria outlined below. The nursing program requires that pre-and co-requisite courses be completed with a grade of "C" or better (a C- or lower will not be accepted). Students admitted to the program are required to attend mandatory orientation sessions scheduled for late spring or early summer and prior to the start of classes.
