Welcome to MCC's Associate Degree Nursing Program!

MCC's two-year Associate Degree Nursing curriculum prepares students to become competent registered nurses to give patient-centered care in hospitals and other health care agencies.

The program admits a class of students in the fall and spring each year. Class size is limited, and a considerable number of applications are received each year. Excluding prerequisites, the ADN Program requires two academic years for completion.

The curriculum provides students with nursing theory and clinical experiences that prepare them to be eligible to take the examination for licensure as a registered nurse, as defined by the Texas Board of Nursing. Current LVNs may choose advanced placement, which has special requirements (see the link to the right).

Mission

The mission of the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program is to prepare nursing graduates that can safely and effectively function in a beginning role as members of the health care team.

The ADN Program offers a comprehensive curriculum that prepares graduates to take the NCLEX-RN to become registered nurses. At the completion of the ADN program curriculum, combined with general education and nursing education courses, students receive an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.

Students can choose to be finished with their education with an A.A.S. or may choose to continue on to a bachelor's degree in nursing. The ADN faculty promotes lifelong learning and workforce development as essential components of the educational process.
