The Traditional Associate Degree Nursing program is a two-year curriculum which leads to an Associate in Applied Science degree. The curriculum includes classroom learning activities, campus skills labs, faculty-directed low tech clinical simulation experiences, and clinical agency learning experiences. Graduates who meet eligibility requirements as mandated by the Texas Board of Nursing and who successfully complete the NCLEX-RN licensure examination are eligible to begin practice as registered nurses.
The Associate Degree Bridge Program is a two-year mobility curriculum with summer bridge or transition courses that allow LVNs (Licensed Vocational Nurses) to “bridge” the gap between Vocational Nursing Education and the second year of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. The Bridge program is one year of prerequisite courses, then one year taking nursing (RNSG) courses. Bridge applicants must have a current LVN license. It is recommended that Bridge applicants have 9+ months of work experience in an acute or patient care setting. (The setting does not have to be a hospital.) The curriculum includes classroom learning activities, campus skills labs, faculty-directed low tech clinical simulation experiences, and clinical agency learning experiences. LVN Bridge graduates who meet ADN eligibility requirements as mandated by the Texas Board of Nursing and who successfully complete the NCLEX-RN licensure examination are eligible to begin practice as registered nurses.
Traditional ADN applicants must meet all general program admission requirements including attendance at a program Information Session. Applications are due February 1st every year. Traditional applications have two (2) pre-requisite courses:
All pre-requisite courses must be completed prior to admission to the program. Applications sent without the required pre-requisite courses must include a plan for completion of each such course. Any of the other Non-RNSG degree plan courses on the degree plan can be taken prior to entering the program or after admission.
ADN Degree Plans will be initiated upon admission to the ADN Program and will be changed if the student drops from the program. New students will be registered for the appropriate RNSG classes by ADN faculty. New students should register themselves for other required classes and, of course, select the schedule the student prefers. A calendar that details the RNSG course lecture, lab, and clinical schedules will be available to students a month or more before the semester starts.
For 2020 admissions, all prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the fall 2019 semester. All prerequisite courses are indicated in ADN degree plans.
