ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING
Associate of Applied Science – 2.5 years
The Associate Degree Nursing Program prepares students to provide care, education, support and guidance regarding health conditions to
patients, their families and the public. Registered Nurses provide care in a variety of settings including acute care, long term care, and
community health. The program is approved by the Michigan State Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to apply to the National Council
Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensing as a registered nurse.
Students wishing to apply to the State Board of Nursing to take the LPN licensure examination will have the opportunity to do so upon
completion of the first three semesters of the program, and after completion of an additional Exit Option class. Students with current LPN
licensure may apply to the program as an advanced standing student. All applicants must meet admission requirements. Prerequisite courses
need to be completed prior to admission to the program.
General Information
1. Criminal Background Checks are required on all students prior to the beginning of coursework. Applicants need to be aware that any
history of misdemeanor and/or felony conviction may make them ineligible to meet clinical and program requirements.
2. The Board of Nursing also requires a Criminal Background Check prior to licensure examination. Application for licensure may be denied
by the Board for a previous felony, previous treatment for drug or alcohol abuse, or after finding the existence of one or more grounds for
board action listed in 333.16221 of the Public Health Code Act 368 of 1978.
3. Students must have documentation of a physical examination, immunizations and current CPR Certification to progress in the
program. CPR certification must be at the level of American Red Cross or American Heart Association Healthcare
Provider. Documentation forms and instructions will be given to students at a Mandatory Workshop during the summer months.
4. Students must have documentation of current CPR Certification by the first clinical day. Certification must be at the level of American
Red Cross Professional Rescuer or AHA Health Care Provider.
5. The clinical facilities have the right to accept or reject a student. This may delay the student in completing the program or make the student
unable to complete the program.
6. Nursing students are required to achieve a grade of “80%” or higher in nursing course work to remain in the program.
7. Anatomy and Physiology coursework must be completed within the past seven years.
8. Students are required to achieve a grade of C or higher in non-nursing (NUR) courses for the course to be considered complete.
