Registered Nursing-Associate Degree Nursing Program

About Registered Nursing

Registered Nursing is a dynamic career opportunity requiring high levels of knowledge, critical thinking skills and a commitment to caring for the client.

Registered nurses are in great demand and Citrus College has made a commitment to offer the Associate Degree in Nursing program in recognition of that demand for Registered Nurses. The student who becomes an associate degree nurse is prepared to provide direct client care across the life span, as well as address acute and chronic health care needs and common well-defined health care problems in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other community health agencies.

In Fall 2007, Citrus College began offering an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN-Registered Nursing) Program.

 About the Program at Citrus

Graduates of the Citrus College ADN Program will be prepared in three basic roles within the health care delivery system: provider of care, manager of care, and team member within the discipline of nursing. Graduates of the ADN program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Graduates who successfully pass the NCLEX-RN will be eligible for licensure to practice as a registered nurse in California. Only the Board of Registered Nursing may issue the Registered Nursing License.

 

Citrus College and the Health Sciences Department are equally committed to assisting each and every student in achieving success. For this reason, specific procedures regarding enrollment and re-entry are in place to ensure that all students committed to their educational goals are given every opportunity to progress and complete the program.
