The ADN Program is designed to prepare learners to become competent registered nurses and to find employment in an entry-level position as a nurse.
How many classes are required for the ADN Program?
The ADN Program consists of 10 pre-licensure core nursing courses, delivered over 4 academic semesters, and 20 GE credits, delivered concurrently and in 1 additional academic semester. The total length of the Program for learners electing to complete all GE requirements at the College is 68 semester credits, or 5 academic semesters.
What classes are required?
Through our blended-distance program, learners engage in online didactic, on-ground labs and simulations, and on-ground clinical experience and learn disease management, treatment, and prevention as well as promotion of health from the standpoint of nursing. The curriculum is specifically constructed to promote career mobility in nursing. The curriculum in the ADN Program is concept-based instead of content-based. Learners will apply concepts to a variety of systems and disease processes, and critically think through situations by concept.
