Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) -

The program is designed to be a 1 + 1

nursing program in which completion

of the first year of the program meets

the requirements for a practical nursing

certificate and completion of the second

year of this program meets the requirements

for an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN).

First year students in the Practical Nursing

Program may continue to the ADN program

if they meet continuation criteria. The

program also accepts advanced standing

students with LPN or who have completed

Paramedic to ADN courses.

The ADN curriculum prepares individuals

with the knowledge, abilities, and skills

to practice nursing independently and

interdependently through application of

the nursing process to provide safe nursing

care to individuals and families across the

lifespan in a variety of settings. Students

in the ADN program will receive classroom

instruction and clinical practice in adult

health, maternal child, community health,

and psychosocial nursing.

to pass a licensing exam after completing a

state approved nursing program. Graduates

of the Associate Degree Nursing Program

are eligible to apply to take the National

Council Licensure Examination™ (NCLEX-

RN), which is required for practice as a

Registered Nurse. Employment opportunities

include acute care centers, long-term care

facilities, clinics, outpatient offices, industry,

and community agencies. Graduates

may transfer many of the credits earned

in the Associate Degree program to a

Baccalaureate Nursing Program.

The ADN program is offered in collaboration

between four colleges: Lake Region State

College, Williston State College, Bismarck

State College, and Dakota College at

Bottineau. The Dakota Nursing Program is
