Purpose: The ADN program at MGCC consists of four semesters of full-time study. Students who successfully complete the program earn an Associate of Applied Science Nursing Degree. They are then eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nursing.

Admission Information: In addition to the general admission requirements established for the College, students whose placement test scores indicate the need to increase their level of proficiency in reading, writing and/or mathematics will be required to take appropriate developmental courses.

Admission Requirements: The Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing requires the completion of selected general education courses in addition to those that are program specific. Prior to entering the fall semester of the first year of the program, admitted students must complete a number of prerequisites courses or provide official transcripts of successful completion of the courses at another accredited college or university. It is common to take 5-6 semesters to complete the ADN program. Please see Admissions Counselor or Nursing Advisor for additional requirements.

Graduation Requirements: Students must complete the required courses in the curriculum and achieve a 2.0 minimum grade point average to receive this academic award.
