Nursing student prepares an IV

The Associate Degree Nursing entry-level and healthcare transition admissions applications are currently open.  See admissions information and deadline dates below.

The Division of Health Studies offers a five semester Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program. Upon satisfactory completion, the Associate of Applied Science

Degree is awarded and the graduate is eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a Registered Nurse. Graduation from the program, however, does not guarantee Board of Nursing approval to take the NCLEX-RN licensing examination.

Admission to the ADN Program is competitive, and the number of students is limited by the number of faculty and clinical facilities available. Meeting minimal requirements does not guarantee acceptance.

The ADN programs two primary options:

  1. PROSPECTIVE ENTRY LEVEL STUDENTS (Generic Option)
    1. Fall Admission – Deadline: April 15
