Nursing, Associate Degree

Nursing is a unique dynamic profession committed to holistic care of the client through health promotion and the diagnosis and treatment of human response to actual or potential health problems.  

Nurses use critical thinking skills in order to provide nursing care across the life span with emphasis on meeting the needs of clients who require assistance to maintain or restore optimum health or to die with dignity.

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is a 60 -credit hour curriculum that leads to an Associate in Applied Science degree.  Graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) as defined by the Texas Board of Nursing.

Our program is approved by:
