The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program at Rock Valley College prepares graduates to work as elementary registered professional nurses (RN) in a range of health care environment, including long-term care facilities, acute care facilities, and many specialty health care facilities. As the health care industry needs evolve, five RN-BSN partnerships have been established to offer students seamless educational route options for acquiring their BSN.
The nursing program comprises four semesters of core nursing courses theory, lab and clinical experiences that meet the standards of the Illinois Nurse Practice Act. The associate degree in nursing is hinged upon recent nursing practice, such as nursing and general education courses. Classroom theory, skill labs, challenging assignments, and clinical experiences will equip students for an entry-level RN position.
The program demands maturity for self-pacing in the education process. After successful completion of the program, the graduate is fit to apply for the NCLEX-RN examination towards becoming licensed as a Registered Nurse.
