To advance or graduate in the Associate Degree Nursing—Hybrid program you must receive a “C” or above in all coursework. Nursing courses with a clinical component may not be taken by a person: a. Who has been denied licensure by the board b. Whose license is currently suspended, surrendered or revoked in an United States jurisdiction c. Whose license/registration is currently suspended, surrendered, or revoked in another country due to disciplinary action. (combination of classroom and online) The Associate Degree Nursing—Hybrid completion program is designed for students who have successfully completed the Practical Nursing program at Northwest Iowa Community College, or for the Licensed Practical Nurse eligible to practice who wishes to continue study for an Associate Degree in Nursing (RN). Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) given by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. To become a Registered Nurse, you must pass the NCLEX exam. Students in the ADN program attain current nursing theory, knowledge, skills and professional attitudes through comprehensive class and laboratory sessions and then apply what they have learned in a clinical/preceptor experience at area healthcare facilities. The curriculum prepares students in medical-surgical, geriatric, obstetric, pediatric, and psychiatric nursing areas. The NCC Nursing Simulation lab provides additional clinical learning experiences. Graduates may transfer credits to four year programs to obtain their Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Attractive employment opportunities for nurses are available in all areas of the country. Current and future shortages of nursing personnel have and will create numerous professional opportunities for registered nurses. A health assessment, current immunization records, child and dependent adult abuse, criminal background check, and the CPR for healthcare providers course is required before you can begin clinical practice. 77
