Become a Registered Nurse (RN)! Columbus State's Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Degree (A.D.N.) prepares our graduates to provide direct care to clients with common health problems in a variety of settings.

We offer a five semester program that includes knowledge from nursing, humanities and sciences along with a strong emphasis on psychomotor skills. Students go to a wide variety of practice settings. Students are exposed to a well-developed curriculum that includes an emphasis on critical thinking, decision making, delegation and care management skills in the acute, intermediate, chronic and community care areas.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam. Licensure from the Ohio Board of Nursing is needed for employment as a Registered Nurse.
