NursingAssociate in Applied Science (AAS)
The demand for graduates with a nursing degree is on the rise nationwide!
The shortage of nurses and a growing number of older individuals have played essential roles in the need for registered nurses in a wide variety of healthcare settings, making this the ideal time to earn a degree. The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to work successfully as a registered nurse (RN) and function with judgment and technical competence in providing care for patients. The program offers classroom discussion, independent learning projects, audio-tutorial labs, and hands-on clinical experiences in area healthcare agencies.
MSTC’s Nursing program is part of the system-wide curriculum developed by the Wisconsin Technical College System. The ADN program offers students the option to take the national licensing test for Licensed Practical Nurse after completion of the first year (32 credits). Students will be eligible to take the licensing exam for Registered Nurse after completion of all 70 credits in the ADN program.
The Nursing program is offered at the Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids campuses. The first year of the Associate Degree Nursing program is identical to the Practical Nursing program. The Nursing program is fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
