MADISON, FL – Applications are currently being accepted for North Florida Community College’s Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. Now is the time to enroll and take care of application, testing and program entrance requirements for Spring Term 2014. Deadline to apply is Oct. 1. Classes begin in January 2014.
NFCC has full approval from the Florida State Board of Nursing to offer the Associate Degree in Nursing. The two-year program (six-semester; 72 credit hours) prepares graduates to take the National Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). A passing score on this exam and licensure by the Florida State Board of Nursing enables graduates to seek employment as a Registered Nurse in the state of Florida.
New students are admitted into the program each January. NFCC Allied Health staff and faculty are available to help prospective students through the enrollment process; contact Debbie Bass at (850) 973-1662, email email@example.com or stop by the Allied Health Department (NFCC campus, NFCC Career and Technical Education Center, Bldg. #13) to receive an application packet for the ADN program. Financial aid and scholarships may be available to qualified students.
NFCC’s Associate Degree in Nursing program is a limited access program. Only the most qualified applicants are accepted. In the case where equally qualified applicants are indentified, residents of Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Taylor counties are given precedence for admission. NFCC’s Allied Health Department also offers Patient Care Technician and Practical Nursing certificate programs. These programs prepare students for a variety of jobs in the health care system.
