Why Choose Midway University’s ADN Nursing Degree?
Midway University is committed to helping our students achieve their educational goals by providing highly flexible degree programs and course delivery options. Our ADN nursing degree is offered as part of our traditional undergraduate programs and in an accelerated format in the evening at our Midway campus.
Becoming a nurse is the beginning to a beautiful career. Midway University’s Nursing program is highly regarded and respected. Our nurses are sought, many times before they even graduate, because of the high quality of our faculty and our dedication to developing strong clinical skills in each student. The associate nursing degree is an excellent choice for students interested in starting a nursing career.
Students who successfully complete an Associate of Science in Nursing (ADN) degree at Midway University are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Successful completion of this examination allows the graduate to practice nursing as a Registered Nurse (RN).
The undergraduate nursing program curriculum has a dual focus. Classroom theory emphasizes the technical and theoretical aspects of nursing, while concentrated, supervised clinical laboratory experiences allow you to practice your skills at several health care agencies in Central Kentucky.
The program prepares students to become registered nurses and also qualifies them for seamless transition into our RN to BSN program. Nursing and science courses emphasize the importance of classroom theory and clinical experiences, while also introducing you to a challenging liberal arts curriculum.
Admission to Midway’s Associate and Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs is selective. Students hoping to begin nursing careers with a science degree should be aware that a certain educational background or preparation is important to assure admission to the nursing program.
