According to a press release, the ADN program prepares entry-level registered nurses to be providers and managers of care across the health and illness continuum. Students are taught by an experienced Registered Nurse faculty who are licensed professionals with practical knowledge and skills in their field of expertise.

Classes and skills training are held on the college campus while clinical training is conducted at local hospitals and other approved facilities. The ADN program is a four-semester, two-year program after the prerequisite courses are completed. Students must also complete all PC general education requirements for graduation.
