Associate Degree Nursing
The Iowa Lakes Community College Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program prepares graduates as entry-level registered nurses in both hospital and community-based settings. Graduates are eligible to take the RN-NCLEX licensure exam upon completion of the program.
As an Associate Degree Nurse, you will have the knowledge and skills to complete assessments, provide necessary care, and evaluate effectiveness of treatments for clients across the lifespan. Completion of the Iowa Lakes Community College nursing program will provide the new graduate nurse with the skills necessary for success and growth within the profession of nursing. However, nursing education only begins at Iowa Lakes Community College. Nursing is a lifelong process of developing knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes that are needed for a challenging and rewarding profession.
The Associate Degree Nursing Program is offered as a full-time daytime program at the Emmetsburg Campus. Iowa Lakes Community College values the challenges of the non-traditional, working student and strives to provide an accommodating learning environment. Therefore, you have the option of attending part-time in the evening/weekend program.
The nursing program is approved by the Iowa Lakes Board of Trustees, the Iowa Department of Education and the Iowa Board of Nursing.
