Associate Degree Nursing

About

Our Associate Degree in Nursing is a two-year program that prepares you as a generalist capable of providing competent, accountable client care in diverse settings. Major areas of emphasis encompass the following core components of nursing practice: professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision-making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration, and managing care.

This is a critical program for anyone looking for a career in nursing. It offers all the knowledge and skill building required for you to launch your career as a registered nurse, or if you’re looking to transfer from your career as a licensed practical nurse (LPN), paramedic, or respiratory therapist. With this in mind, Hinds Community College offers two options for you to choose from: the Generic Option and the Transition to RN Option.
