The Associate Degree Nursing Program offers a curriculum for those seeking an ADN degree and to qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX®) as well as licensing from the Mississippi State Board of Nursing.

The program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia 30326 (www.acenursing.org) and the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning of Mississippi (www.ihl.state.ms.us).

In addition to the curriculum for generic students the ADN Program offers differentiated education consisting of two options for advanced placement for the licensed practical nurse (LPN).

Option I offers a twelve-month program for LPNs who take transition courses in the summer, enter the generic program at the sophomore level in August, and complete the program the following May.

Option II offers a slower paced avenue to LPNs who take nursing theory courses in the fall and spring of the first year and enter the generic program at the sophomore level in August of the second year and complete the program the following May.
