The two-year Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is planned to enhance understanding in general education courses and nursing. On successful conclusion of the approved curriculum, graduates are qualified to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEXRN).
The Alabama Board of Nursing approved ADN program, and it has been accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The resource center for information regarding the ADN program is the ACEN. Presently, George C Wallace Community College in Dothan does not support an option for its students to earn a nursing degree online.
