Associate Degree Nursing

A registered nurse is a graduate from an Approved Professional Nursing program (ADN) 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.
