Enrollment in the Associate Degree Nursing Program is
limited. Because of the number of applicants, completion of
all admission requirements does not ensure acceptance into the
program. Candidates for admission are selected from the pool of
qualified applicants using a point-based process.
The ADN program is operated with the approval of the State
Board of Nursing. The student graduates with an Associate

with a focus on critical thinking and preparation to provide
independent and holistic quality nursing care.
When students are accepted into the RN program they must
graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of their admission
to that program or a subsequent catalog.
