Additional Program Information

  • Students seeking admission into the ADN program may complete the required general education coursework with a “C” or above prior to the date of entry into the program. These courses are not pre-requisites; however, it is beneficial to complete as many of the courses as possible while waiting for admission into the program. If the student utilizes financial aid, care should be taken to ensure there are sufficient general education courses still needed upon beginning the program to ensure a full-time load which may be required to maintain financial aid, please speak with the Health Sciences Advisor regarding this.

  • The nursing component of the degree is composed of nine nursing courses taken in four semesters. Each course must be taken in sequence and generally includes classroom and clinical experiences. Clinical experiences will be provided at hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and other selected facilities. The student should anticipate additional time for preparation in nursing courses as well as in the non-nursing courses.

  • Prior to clinical experience, a physical examination, urine drug screen, documentation of immunizations and a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course are required.

  • Students are expected to provide their own transportation to clinical sites. Clinical sites are located throughout Central and Northeast Missouri.
