Program Overview


Registered Nursing – Traditional (ADN)

The Associate Degree Nursing program is designed to provide an educational opportunity in which students:

  • Develop a scientific basis of nursing practice
  • Master technical skills
  • Develop caring patient relationships

Nursing and science classes are limited in size so that students can experience enhanced faculty interaction and learning.  In addition, the nursing lab will give students the opportunity to handle equipment and master technical skills. Under the direct supervision of qualified instructors, students will experience patient interactions, which foster caring and empathetic approaches to nursing care.

The goals of the Registered Nursing degree program are to:

  • Graduate students who are competent in the scientific aspects of nursing
  • Graduate students who are competent in the technical aspects of nursing
  • Graduate students who are able to work with patients and families through caring, empathetic interactions

This two-year associate degree program prepares the graduate to pass the NCLEX-RN licensing examinations and become a Registered Nurse.  Apply early to this highly-selective and highly-challenging program. The program is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

Students are encouraged to start completion of prerequisites and applicable general education courses as soon as possible. Questions? Contact the Nursing Advisor at 740.699.3820.

Class size is limited to space available in the ADN program.
