Registered Nursing

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is operated with the approval of the State Board of Nursing. Successful completion of the program requirements earns an Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing and makes the student eligible to sit for the state licensure examination (RN-NCLEX) to become a licensed registered nurse.

Enrollment in the ADN program is limited. Because of the number of applicants, completion of all admission requirements does not ensure acceptance into the program. Candidates for admission are selected from the pool of qualified applicants using a point-based process.  EITC no longer requires students to complete a licensed practical nursing program as a prerequisite to enroll in its registered nursing program.
