Students can choose to complete the ADN or Associate Degree in Nursing, which is a two-year program enabling students to sit for the examination leading to licensure as a registered nurse.
Currently licensed practical nurses (LPNs) can also choose to complete the LPN-ADN program, which is a three semester program enabling students to sit for the examination leading to licensure as a registered nurse.
