The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) curriculum provides individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide nursing care to clients and groups of clients throughout their lifespan in a variety of settings. The program provides high-quality education to individuals in the community seeking a career as a registered nurse and promotes the transition of the licensed practical nurse into the role of the registered nurse. Upon completion of the course of study and successfully passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), the student may enter employment as a registered nurse.
