The Associate Degree Nursing program leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree and allows the graduate to apply to take the state licensing exams for registered nursing and the jurisprudence exam.

A Registered Nurse (RN) is a professional member of the health care team managing and providing care to patients in a variety of settings.

The nursing practice of the LVN and RN differs in scope and depth of patient responsibilities.  Primary responsibilities of the RN include providing nursing care as well as supervising and coordinating the care given by others.

An RN must be able to work well  with others and respond to patiient needs, perform basic math skills and complex procedures, set priorities, manage time, solve problems, think critically, communicate, and maintain accountability in the profession.

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program requires a minimum of two years of study. A new class is selected each spring to begin the fall semester. An application process is required for admission to the ADN program.
