The Professional Nursing training program in Metropolitan Community College plan leads to the Associate in Applied Science in nursing degree. The ADN or Associate of Applied Science is a two (2) year degree.
Beginning pupils are prepared to take and sit the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses. Graduates who successfully pass the examination can accept entry-level jobs in acute, intermediate and long-term care centers.
The nursing training program is completely endorsed by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is certified by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
Upon successful completion of the training program, the graduate is expected to file an application with the Missouri State Board of Nursing to write and take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for the registered professional nurse (RN). After successful completion of the exam, a license will be awarded for the graduate to practice as a certified nurse in the State of Missouri.
About The School
In the year 1915, the Kansas City community was asking for local higher education options. Due to the growing demand, the Kansas City school board endorsed the post-secondary education experiment known as, the Kansas City Polytechnic Institute.
As Kansas City extended into the suburbs in the 1960s, so did Metropolitan Community College, starting the Longview, Maple Woods, and also Penn Valley campuses in the year 1969. In the year 1980’s and 1990’s, the Park Hill, the Blue Springs, Independence and Fort Osage school districts joined up with the MCC region. Blue River Community College was called the 4th campus in the year 1997, and the Business & Technology campus was added in the year 2002.
In December of 2005, all five campuses combined to be one Metropolitan Community College. The objective was to build a more unified district to serve the demands of pupils all around the Greater Kansas City region.
Total program cost is USD $21,007
