About Us

The ADN program is a 2-year, 4 semester, program which prepares the student for a leadership role in the care of patients in a variety of health care settings including acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, clinics and out-patient services.

The curriculum prepares nurses to assume responsibility for directing the nursing care of patients with acute and chronic illness. It also provides theory and practice for the student to develop the ability to perform preventative, therapeutic and rehabilitative intervention techniques. In addition to treatments and procedures (including medications and intravenous therapy), the program emphasizes patient education, psychosocial and cultural aspects, and bioethics.   

Upon completion of the ADN curriculum, the student is awarded an Associate in Science Degree and is eligible to take the National Council Licensing Exam for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN). A new class is admitted every Fall semester according to a prescribed selection process.

2018 RN Application & Instructions

Please note: An error existed on page 5 of the application stating that all science courses need to be taken within the last five years. This is not true. There is no recency requirement for science courses. There is however a requirement stating that no more than one repetition in the last five years for science courses is allowed. The error has been corrected. The application that is here is correct. 

All students are encouraged to log onto for TEAS study material and other useful resources and information.
