The associate degree nursing program is a comprehensive program of study that integrates theory and clinical practice. This seamless curriculum is designed to provide qualified individuals with an opportunity to acquire the knowledge, mindset, and skills to become safe and competent nursing practitioners. Students have the option of taking the practical nursing licensure examination (NCLEX-PN) upon successful completion of the first three semesters. Continuing the program for an additional two semesters will lead to graduation with an associate degree in nursing. Graduates are eligible to take the registered nursing licensure examination (NCLEX-RN).
