ADN Program

The Fresno City College Nursing program is designed to prepare students for the provision of health care services. The program equips students with the scientific knowledge and technical skills required in the nursing profession as well as leadership and managerial expertise.

In class instruction is offered at the Fresno City College campus while Nursing Clinical practice is provided for at selected hospitals and other healthcare facilities in the local community.

Students who successfully complete the program are awarded an Associate of Science degree and are eligible to sit for the National Nursing Licensing examination as preamble to working in a structured health care environment.     

The curriculum is covered in four semesters of 9 or more credits. Students are able to take additional credits every semester to complete the general education requirements for the program. The program also offers additional specialized nursing electives to supplement the nursing education being offered.

The program is quite intensive and it is not recommended that a student works more than 16 hours per week during the nursing part of the section to insure technical ability and be ready for the National Nursing Examination.    

The courses and credits offered in the ADN program are designed to be transferable towards a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
