Why Choose This Program

SCTCC’s Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program provides the students with academic, labs and clinical opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills, and core qualities to become a registered nurse.

The ADN program combines classroom lectures, simulation labs, clinical activities, and other numerous learning opportunities. The program is demanding and rigorous in the scope and depth of study. You will be expected to display personal responsibility and understanding of the requirements of the program and profession. 

You will have the opportunity to become a registered nurse through progression of nursing assistant to licensed practical nurse to registered nurse. Graduates from the ADN program have the option to apply to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

My end goal is to be a family nurse practitioner. Compassion, having the discipline, being understanding – that’s what it takes to be a good nurse.
Nursing (A.D.N.)
Talking to your patient, holding their hand, asking how their day has been going. This will make you a successful nurse.
