Associate Degree Nursing

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program teaches our students to work well with others and respond to patient needs, perform basic math skills and complex procedures, set priorities, manage time, solve problems, think critically, communicate, and maintain accountability in the profession. The program has a 2-Year and LVN-Bridging Advanced Placement Track. The advanced placement track prepares the Licensed Vocational Nurse to make the transition into the professional nursing role. Both of these options lead to an Associate of Applied Science degree and allow graduates to apply to take the state licensing exam for registered nursing (RN).
