Virtual/Hybrid Associate Degree Nursing Accelerated Admissions Option

Academic Map

The one-year ADN Accelerated Admissions Option is available in Moberly, Kirksville and Mexico, Missouri. Articulation between nursing education programs facilitates the education of nurses with the advanced preparation necessary to meet current and future nursing needs. The advanced placement of licensed practical nurses is an accelerated admissions option to the ADN program that builds on the basic practical nursing education program. This program is offered in a combination of face-to-face, virtual, and online delivery methods that combines the benefits of a web-based, real time instructional delivery platform that brings the education to the students at one of our off-campus locations, along with the benefits of hands on classroom/lab experiences, face to face faculty engagement, experience with state of the art simulation equipment and real-life clinical experiences, all in the students' local community.
