Associate Degree Nursing (ADN)

Do you want to pursue the nursing field, but you are new to health care and have no formal nursing education? Consider San Jacinto College’s generic associate degree nursing (ADN) program. Offered at the North and Central Campuses, the ADN program prepares you to become a registered nurse, or RN. After successfully completing the program, you may obtain your license by passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN).

Did you know our ADN program has produced great nurses for more than 50 years? Join this tradition of excellence by becoming a vital member of the health care community who started at San Jac. We have scholarships, grants, and other financial aid to help you along the way!

After you finish our ADN program, we encourage you to pursue an RN-to-BSN degree. Since fall 2020, San Jac has offered a BSN program at Central Campus.
