Salt Lake City, Utah (PressExposure) April 23, 2012 -- Students enrolled in the Associate Degree in Nursing Education at Stevens-Henager College can now graduate from their program of study in less-than-normal completion time.
An ADN program typically lasts for two years or more. At Stevens-Henager College, the normal length of the program is 28 months, but students who wish to graduate sooner have the option of completing it in just 22 months on the college's flexible schedule.
Students can, therefore, graduate a whole six months earlier than normal and fast-track their entry into the nursing workforce. By graduating early, students are also able to save on the associated costs of college like accommodation, transportation, and personal expenses.
The ADN program at Stevens-Henager College is an excellent amalgamation of classroom instruction and the clinical practice that's such an essential part of any nursing degree. Students are also provided laboratory skills and patient care simulation experience as part of their academic program.
The curriculum involves courses in general education, health and life sciences, and nursing theory such as Sociology, Writing, Communication Arts, Microbiology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, Pharmacology, Nutrition, Nursing Fundamentals, Nursing Process, Maternal-Newborn Nursing, Medical-Surgical Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, Critical Care Nursing, etc.
The objective of the program is to provide graduates competencies for the role of entry-level generalist staff nurse.
In addition to training students in bedside patient care, the Associate Degree in Nursing Education at Stevens-Henager College is a great stepping-stone to a BSN degree, which may be required for professional advancement.
The program is available at the Ogden/West Haven campus of Stevens-Henager College and its satellite location in Layton. It is accredited by the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a specialized accrediting body for postsecondary and higher nursing education programs.
