The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is run with the endorsement of the State Board of Nursing. Upon successful completion of the course requirements, graduates receive Associate of Applied Science degree certificates in nursing and qualify to sit for the state licensure examination (RN-NCLEX) to become a licensed registered nurse.

Enrollment in the ADN program is limited. Because of the number of applicants, completion of all admission requirements does not ensure acceptance into the program. Candidates for admission are selected from the pool of qualified applicants using a point-based process. EITC no longer requires students to complete a licensed practical nursing program as a prerequisite to enroll in its registered nursing program.
The nursing program at Eastern Tech is an LPN to ADN program. In order to qualify to apply to the program, a prospective student must be working, licensed LPN’s or LVN’s in Idaho. This is different from some programs in other states at other schools, where a student may be able to attend the LPN-RN program immediately upon completing their LVN courses and obtaining their LPN license, even if they have never practiced. This program takes three semesters and one summer term to complete.
