Nurses make a difference. No other position in the healthcare community has as big an impact in the lives of patients. Day in and day out, they provide the one-on-one contact, care and compassion that helps to heal patients body, mind and soul. Are you ready to join this elite group of healthcare providers? Are you ready to provide a healing touch? Are you ready to become a nurse?
Then you’re ready for the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from University of the Cumberlands. 

Offered exclusively at our Williamsburg, Kentucky, campus, this 67-credit-hour degree program will help you build the strong educational foundation you need for long-term success in your patient-centered nursing career. It’s the foundation you’ll need to sit for—and pass—the NCLEX-RN exam and apply for licensure.

Your campus based ADN program will prepare you to:

  • Provide patient-centered care via the nursing process 
  • Work as an integral part of the healthcare team
  • Use the best and most current evidence-based care for patient treatment
  • Minimize risk of patient harm
  • Use information and technology to reduce the potential for incidences of error

Our ADN offers everything you need to pursue entry-level nursing programs. Or, you can use it to level-up to a bachelor’s or master’s degree using our RN-BSN bridge program or Master of Science in Nursing online program.

If you’re ready to make a difference in the lives of others, then you’re ready for an affordable, evidence-based, in-person ADN program from the University of the Cumberlands! Fill out the form on this page to get started! We’ll be in touch soon.
