ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING (ADN-RN program): After successfully completing the two-year ADN program, you will receive an Associate of Applied Science - Nursing Degree and are eligible to take the licensing exam for registered nursing (RN).

RNs plan, care, and work with people to help them become healthier or to regain health after illness or surgery. Nurses teach health practices to clients and other health care providers, and frequently supervise the work of nursing assistants and practical nurses.
