Associate in Applied Science in Nursing


Four-Semester (Two-Year) Program

Special Note

The Virginia Community College System (VCCS) has adopted a new common, concept-based curriculum for all nursing programs in the system. Effective Summer Semester 2018, the new ADN curriculum will be in effect. It is crucial that prospective students monitor the program's webpage and seek guidance from the nursing admissions advisor or advising center staff regarding admission requirements and general education course requirements.


Program Notes

The associate degree nursing program is both time consuming and academically challenging. Students who have significant work and/or family responsibilities may want to consider completing as many non-nursing courses as possible prior to beginning the sequence of nursing courses.
