Associate Degree Nursing (ADN)

The noble pursuit of nursing is both an art and science. It is a unique profession that takes into consideration both the patient's clinical needs as well as views of the patient as a holistic being (bio-psycho-social-spiritual). Nurses are often at the front lines working closely with other members of the health care team to encourage patients to participate in their care.

Program Information

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Fundamentals of Nursing

What are the Career Opportunities?

The nursing job and career prospects for registered nurses are excellent (and will be for years) due to a projected critical shortage of RNs. Government statistics indicate hiring should increase by almost 26 percent through 2020.**
