Academic Program Model
Associate Degree Nurse - Track (AAS.ADN.TRK)
The Associate Degree in Nursing Track (AAS.ADN.TRK) prepares the student for acceptance into the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. The ADN program is a competitive, special admission program.
Interested students should submit an Intent to Enroll to the college and list the Academic Program as AAS.ADN.TRK. Then, follow the ADN Application Checklist carefully for instructions about the application procedure. Students who select this academic program will be assigned a nursing faculty advisor. Once formally accepted into the ADN program, the nursing department will change the program code to AAS.ADN.
State regulations require that qualified in-district residents be accepted before consideration is given to out-of-district applicants.
Applicants must have a completed nursing application on file in the nursing department by February 1. Applicants will be notified via email of tentative acceptance/denial within six weeks of the deadline.
Admission is competitive and selective using an objective formula. Selection criteria includes the date on the Admission Application, grades in co-requisite courses completed prior to application deadline, and the HESI A2 Admissions Assessment Exam score. Download the ADN Application Checklist from the website for the complete application procedure.
The following must be completed by the February 1st deadline:
1. Complete an Intent to Enroll for Lake Land College. (Note: acceptance to the college does not guarantee admission into the ADN program.)
2. Complete the online Nursing Admission Application indicating interest in the Associate Degree Nursing program.
3. If applicable, submit an official transcript from any other colleges attended to Admissions & Records and request a transcript evaluation for AAS.ADN and AA.PNUR.
4. Complete pre-requisite BIO 100 or BIO 225 with a grade of "C" or better.
5. Achieve satisfactory scores on the Lake Land College Placement test, SAT, or ACT to determine eligibility to take the HESI A2 Admissions Assessment exam. See ADN admission checklist for details.
6. Achieve a satisfactory score of 75 on the HESI A2 Admissions Assessment exam. If the exam is repeated the most recent score is used. To ensure a completed application the HESI A2 Admissions Assessment exam should be taken in the fall prior to the February 1 application deadline. Scores are valid for 5 years.
7. High school students selected for the Partnership for Career and College Success (PCCS) curriculum will enter the nursing program in the second year at Lake Land College. See PCCS ADN Application Checklist.
8. Co-requisite courses may be taken prior to or during the semester designated but not after. Co-requisite courses are only accepted with a "C" or better. Completion of BIO 226 must be within 5 years of the program application deadline. A 2-credit cadaver course (ADN 061) is offered if A & P courses taken at other colleges do not include human cadaver or if taken over 5 years ago.
9. Licensed Practical Nurses must submit a current Illinois Practical Nursing license and an official waiver form for ADN 040, AND 042, ADN 053, and HED 102. Waiver forms can be found on the Lake Land College website. All co-requisite courses must be completed with a "C" or higher.
Transition to ADN is required the semester prior to ADN 076.
See LPN to ADN Application Checklist for details.
Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
