At its origin, the program was designed to be completed in two years; however, currently, most students take at least three years to complete the entire curriculum-a year for general education requirements and two years for nursing courses.

The curriculum prepares graduates to assume beginning staff positions under supervision as providers of care, coordinators of care, and members of the profession of nursing. On completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (N-CLEX-RN) to become licensed as Registered Nurses. Employment may be sought in a variety of structured health care settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient clinics, ambulatory care centers, home health and hospice, schools and other community settings.

There are two educational tracks in the Associate Degree Nursing Program: the basic (for unlicensed students) and the transition (for licensed vocational/practical nurses). Students who wish to transfer from another institution are managed on an individual basis and must contact the Division Chair, the ADN coordinator, or the Health Sciences Enrollment Management Specialist for details.

For more information on the ADN program, admission requirements, and degree plans see the TC Catalog.
