Associate Degree Nurse (AAS.ADN)

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is an intensive, two-year academic program that includes classroom, skills laboratory, and clinical experience in various healthcare agencies. Program graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Upon successful completion of the NCLEX-RN, the graduate may apply for RN licensure. Completion of the ADN program does not guarantee RN licensure.

The program is approved by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. State regulations require that qualified in-district residents will be accepted before consideration is given to out-of-district applicants.

The associate nursing program at Lake Land College at the Mattoon campus located in Mattoon, Illinois and the Kluthe campus located in Effingham, Illinois is accredited by the: Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) 3390 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30326, Phone: (404) 975-5000. The most recent accreditation decision made by the ACEN Board of Commissioners for the associate nursing program is Continuing Accreditation. View the public information disclosed by the ACEN regarding this program at http://www.acenursing.us/accreditedprograms /programSearch.htm

The ADN program is a competitive, special admission program which uses an objective formula to rank applicants. Applicants seeking admission into the Associate Degree Nursing Program for Fall semester must have a completed application on file in the nursing department prior to the admission deadline of February 1st. Applicants are notified via Lake Land email of tentative acceptance/denial within six weeks of the admission deadline.

To review the Application Process and Admission Criteria refer to the Associate Degree Nurse Track page.

Acceptance


Final acceptance is tentative upon receipt of the following:

1. Completed Nursing Program Physical.

2. Proof of immunizations.

3. Current CPR certification (Note: CPR and immunizations must remain current throughout program).

4. A background check.

A negative drug screen is required prior to the start of clinical experiences.

Once admitted to the program, the student must progress through the nursing courses in the following curriculum model. A "C" grade is required in all ADN curriculum courses for progression/completion. Co-requisite courses may be taken prior to or along with nursing courses. Grades on all co-requisite courses are included in the admissions formula.

The Allied Health Program guidelines and expectations align with the College's Pandemic Safety Response Guidelines. If the College updates the guidelines, the Allied Health Programs will follow the new guidelines. If clinical partners impose guidelines that are more restrictive, such as a vaccination mandate, the Allied Health Programs will follow the clinical partner's guidelines. If a student refuses to comply with the clinical site's protocols, he/she will fail to meet clinical objectives and will therefore fail the course.

Cost

In addition to tuition and fees, costs include text books and software products, uniforms, supplies, physical examination and immunizations, CPR certification, background check, drug screen, and transportation to clinical experiences.

Additional expenses upon completion of the program include NCLEX-RN test fees and licensure application fees.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
