Nursing - LPN To ADN Bridge
Our Associate Degree Nursing Program prepares students to practice at an entry level in a variety of settings that may be inpatient, outpatient, community based, or long term. If you choose to pursue a degree to become a registered nurse, you should know that “employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 16 percent through 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur for a number of reasons, including an increased emphasis on preventative care; growing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and the demand for healthcare services from the baby boomer population, as they live longer and more active lives”.
