The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program prepares graduates to function as competent registered nurses who are caring and sensitive to diversity and use critical thinking and technology to provide care in structured settings for patients and their families/significant others. Throughout the program, the student has planned clinical experiences to complement classroom learning and to enhance skills in the application of nursing principles and associated technology. The scheduling of clinical experiences varies throughout the nursing program.

The Associate Degree Nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3390 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, Georgia 30326, (404)975-5000, www.acenursing.org. The most recent accreditation decision made by the ACEN Board of Commissioners for the Associate Degree Nursing program is Continuing Accreditation.

The ADN program prepares graduates to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and is approved by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) Board of Nursing, 110 Centerview Drive, Columbia, SC 29210, (803)896-4300, https://llr.sc.gov/nurse.

Requirements for the program are subject to change without notice in order to meet requirements of the South Carolina LLR Board of Nursing, the South Carolina Technical College System, and ACEN.

Successful completion of the ADN program does not guarantee licensure to practice as a registered nurse.
