The Associate Degree Nursing Program (A.D.N.)

Nursing is a care-oriented profession requiring a well educated nurse. The curriculum of the Odessa College Associate Degree Nursing program prepares graduates to assume beginning staff positions under supervision as a member of the profession, as a provider of patientcentered care, as a patient safety advocate, and as a member of the health care team. Upon successful completion of the licensing examination, NCLEX-RN®, the graduate becomes a registered nurse. Odessa College offers traditional and transition tracks to obtain the associate degree in applied science for nursing. Both tracks require the same non-nursing courses to complete the degree. Traditional students are those without licensure as an LVN Traditional students are admitted to the day option. The transition track allows the licensed vocational nurse (LVN) to receive credit for selected nursing courses through advanced placement. Transition students must currently hold a license to practice nursing as an LVN in the state of Texas. Traditional and transition students receive clinical education in various hospitals, health care agencies and community organizations.
