The Associate Degree Nursing program prepares nurses to
function with the knowledge, skill and judgment of beginning
staff nurses in a variety of health care settings. The
Associate Degree Program is accredited by the:
Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc.
(ACEN). For more information about this accreditation
contact: ACEN, 3343 Peachtree Road NE,

Graduates are eligible to apply to the Wisconsin Board of
Nursing to take the examination for licensure as a
Registered Nurse. State Administrative Code rules state that
a graduate may have difficulty obtaining a license with an
arrest or conviction record that is substantially related to
nursing practice. The Coordinator of the program is
available to discuss concerns in this area.
Students may apply for testing for licensure as L.P.N.
(Licensed Practical Nurse) after successfully completing all
courses through the second semester. L.P.N.'s entering into
the ADN program may receive credit for past clinical
education based on their current knowledge, skills and
judgment. In order to help L.P.N.'s be program ready, they
will need to take the Nursing Bridge course before entering
third semester. Re-entry, transfer, and LPN students must
contact the counseling office for information about entry to
the nursing program. Acceptance to the program will be based
upon space availability and approval of the nursing faculty.
