Nursing student prepares an IV

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: Traditional & Hybrid Track)
