Associate Degree Nursing

A registered nurse is a graduate from an Approved Professional Nursing program (ADN, BSN) and passed the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). An RN assesses patient health problems and needs, develops and implements nursing care plans, and documents care. An RN provides nursing care to ill, injured, convalescent, or disabled patients. An RN may provide education to patients about health maintenance and disease prevention or provide case management. State licensure is required.  Falsely claiming licensure as an RN is a felony.


The Brazosport College ADN Program is a two year program awarding an Associate in Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.). Upon satisfactory completion of all college and program requirements, graduates are eligible to make application for the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).


The ADN program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing

The application process for the ADN program begins each spring semester every year. For additional information, consult the Brazosport College catalog and or  see the helpful links section (below) for prerequisites and program requirements.
All students MUST complete College Mandated Entrance Testing scoring at college level in reading, writing, and math skills. For questions, see BC counselors.
