The Associate Degree Nursing program prepares men and women to function effectively as registered nurses in a health care team. Nursing theory is integrated with supportive courses from the humanities, mathematics, biological and behavioral sciences.
Scheduling and Entry Options for Traditional Associate Degree Nursing
Entry is based on acceptance into the clinical portion of the program. Day and limited evening classes are available. Enrollment in the major courses begins in the Fall and Spring terms. Four semesters are required to complete the degree. Nursing courses build on each preceding course and must be taken in sequence. General Education courses are offered both day and evening and can be completed as outlined in the curriculum guide. Readmission and progression criteria in the Associate Degree Nursing program are different from those of the College as a whole. Completion of required nursing courses within three years of entry into the first nursing course must be attained or competency (didactic, skill, math) must be demonstrated.
The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is approved by the State Board of Nursing for South Carolina and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
