Associate Degree Nursing
Dear Prospective Student and Visitor
Thank you for your interest in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program at Coahoma Community College. The ADN (RN) program of study is designed for qualified Licensed Practical Nurses and consists of 2 semesters (30 semester hours) of general education courses and one summer term followed by 2 semesters of nursing courses. Students are provided clinical experiences that build on previously acquired skills and include direct patient care, virtual learning methods and clinical simulations using computerized patient care mannequins.
The ADN program:
- awards an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing to its graduates.
- continually concentrates on providing an educational program that is highest in quality and responsive to the needs of the community.
- is small enough to know each student as a unique individual.
- provides classroom and clinical learning activities that are designed to engage the student as an active participant in their own learning process.
- prepares the graduate for successful completion of the NCLEX-RN® and practice as an entry level Registered Nurse.
The Associate Degree Nursing Program is student friendly and future-oriented. Students partner with qualified, committed faculty who strive to continually provide the most current information, trends, and requirements that promote a healthy transition in practice for a successful career as a Registered Nurse.
