Career Technical

The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing program is to prepare men and women for the role of registered nurse, competent to function as a professional and valuable member of the health care team in providing care for individuals, families and communities.

EMCC offers two entry options for the Associate Degree Nursing Program. The Generic option and the LPN to RN transition option.

The Transition option is for Licensed Practical Nurses who wish to become Registered Nurses. The program is designed to be completed in three semesters. The student will begin the transition program in the fall semester. The first semester of this program will be primarily on line with visits to the campus for testing and skills validations only. Upon successful completion of the first semester, the student will join the second year of the generic RN option.
