    What Will I Learn
    The LPN-ADN program teaches you skills of direct patient care and critical thinking in the role of a registered nurse that you can apply in any healthcare setting. It offers theoretical and applied instruction in classrooms, simulated laboratories, and clinical settings. It integrates education in adult, gerontological, obstetric, pediatric, and psychiatric-mental health nursing. Your clinical learning will take place in diverse types of institutions. 

    Career Information
    While the demand for high quality health care continues to grow, the shortage of registered nurses is projected to grow to 500,000 by 2025. Such a large shortage results in highly competitive salaries, benefits, and more. Another great benefit is the many nursing specialties that are available. For example, a nurse can become a labor and delivery nurse, flight nurse, home health nurse, ER nurse, ICU nurse, or psychiatric nurse etc. The ADN program prepares you to provide safe, therapeutic, and competent nursing care in hospitals and other healthcare settings. You may also work as an entry level patient-care manager. According to the bureau of labor statistics, the average nurse’s yearly income is $65,470.
