Associate Degree Nursing Advanced Placement
If you are a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and want to advance your nursing career, the next step is to earn an Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) that prepares you to take the NCLEX licensing exam for registered nurses (RNs). SFCC ADN graduates who take the NCLEX exam have an excellent pass rate, and the program is approved by the Missouri Board of Nursing.
If you are not an LPN, then you need to begin the nursing program by enrolling in the Practical Nursing Year One program.
Flexibility and transferability
SFCC’s Year Two nursing program prepares you not only to complete requirements for an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) but also to transfer to four-year institutions to earn a bachelor’s degree. With this flexibility, you can receive an affordable ADN with strong marketable skills and still have the option of transferring
to a four-year institution.
You also have the option to earn a bachelor's in nursing on the Sedalia campus from Central Methodist University (CMU). Click CMU
How to apply
If you have completed your Practical Nursing program at SFCC, then you can seamlessly continue into the Year Two program. You have the first eight weeks of Year Two to take and pass the PN licensure exam.
Applications are reviewed monthly when all requirements are met and received. Accepted students are assigned the next available seat.
