Overview on the Associates Degree Program for Nurses (ADN)

The Associate of Arts in Nursing (ADN) program provides the education and training to help you begin your Registered Nursing career. The ADN program is an all-inclusive year-round program, consisting of six 16-week semesters over the course of 24 months, which allows many graduates to enter the workforce sooner than students enrolled in other traditional nursing programs.

The ADN program provides students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a Registered Nurse in a variety of settings. Students enrolled in this program receive classroom, laboratory, and clinical instruction in nursing areas of fundamentals, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, medical/surgical nursing, mental health, obstetrics, and pediatric nursing.

The Associate of Arts in Nursing program at the Marsha Fuerst School of Nursing is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) at Glendale Career College, North-West College San Diego, North-West College West Covina, and North-West College Bakersfield.

Job Growth Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. In addition, growth is also expected to be faster than average in outpatient care centers, where patients do not stay overnight, such as those which provide same-day chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and surgery.

As a result of this increased growth, and the need to replace workers who retire, overall job opportunities are expected to be good and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2018 to 2028.*

Preparation for Licensure

Students completing the ADN program are qualified to apply for licensure through the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). Once a graduate is made eligible by the BRN, the graduate may take the NCLEX-RN, and the college provides on-going NCLEX-RN preparation and personalized remediation aimed toward student success.

The Associate of Arts in Nursing program meets the education requirements for a program of study designed to lead to licensure as a Registered Nurse in the State of California.

The State of California requires that an applicant for a Registered Nurse professional licensure to complete a nursing program that consists of 58-semester credit program offered at an institution approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN).

Graduates of this program must also pass the NCLEX exam to become a Registered Nurse, which is offered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. after a student successfully completes the College’s Associate of Arts in Nursing program.

The College has not made a determination that the Associate of Arts in Nursing program meets the Registered Nurse professional licensure requirements of any other state.
