About ADN Programs

Many people today believe that a career in nursing requires a bachelor’s degree in the subject. Yet while there are certain advantages for nurses who do hold a bachelor’s of science in nursing (BSN), most states allow for those who hold the associates degree in nursing (ADN) to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) and to become registered nurses if they pass it. ADN nursing programs are thus a viable, and in many cases preferable, option for those who want to pursue a career in nursing.
