Students in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program learn the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences to train them for the nursing curriculum.
The program trains graduates to help a diverse patient population within the community through health care, as well as caring for them across the lifespan, through, injury, illness or disability.
Using a patient-centered approach, the program grooms graduates to care for their patients through critical thinking skills, evidence-based practice, excellent communication skills and innovation and creativity.
Upon graduation, the registered nurse will manage, lead, and direct care with other health care disciplines within our community. The program is founded on the fundamental core values of patient-centeredness, diversity, caring ethics, holism, excellence and integrity.
Graduates obtain the Associate in Applied Sciences Degree in Nursing (ADN) and are qualified to take the licensure exam for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN)
