Associate Degree Registered Nurse
Idaho State University has developed a new Associate Degree Registered Nurse program.
The program is unique because its intent is to reach out to Idaho healthcare facilities and their Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN's) and to offer required course work through distance delivery methods. This new alternative delivery nursing education option helps students earn an academic associate of science degree while, for much of their education, remaining in their home communities. The program provides classroom, laboratory, and clinical instruction which prepares graduates to write the NCLEX-RN exam. Successfully passing this examination provides eligibility for the nurse to be licensed to practice as a registered nurse in Idaho and to be eligible to make application for licensure in other states. Articulation into baccalaureate and master's nursing programs is available to the graduate.
The basic prerequisite for entry to the program is that candidates have a current license to practice as an LPN in Idaho. They also need proof of current CPR training, immunizations, health screening, and IV Therapy instruction. Persons who are interested may begin preparing for the program by taking the required general education and prerequisite coursework.
