Nursing at Columbus State
Columbus State's Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Degree (A.D.N.) prepares our graduates to provide direct care to clients with common health problems in a variety of settings. We offer a five semester program that includes knowledge from nursing, humanities and sciences along with a strong emphasis on psychomotor skills. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam .
The program is for those students who have a bachelors degree in another field of study, but now wish to become a registered nurse. Note: Although the classes are online, you'll still need to attend a clinical site for hands-on training, and participate in on campus labs.
The Practical Nurse Program is a part-time evening and weekend program designed to prepare graduates to provide health care to clients of various ages in a variety of health care settings. The part-time program is designed as a career path for entry-level patient care providers.
If you already have an LPN, you can get an associate degree to allow you to take your RN exam.
This one-class certificate (NURC 1101) qualifies students to become a Nurse Aide. NURC 1101 is a prerequisite for most of our nursing programs, so be sure to check it out.
We offer a number of certificates aimed at students who either want to enter the health care field, or for nurses who want to expand their credentials.
