Associate Degree in Nursing Program

The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program is a six-semester, year-round program, which is only available at Chamberlain College of Nursing’s Columbus, Ohio campus. The ADN program prepares students with the skills and knowledge needed to assume the role of a registered nurse. Graduates of the program will have a solid foundation to build on for continued learning and potential career advancement.

On-site or Online Learning

ADN students have the option of on-site or online learning for instruction in both nursing, as well as liberal arts and sciences courses.

Online courses are structured with weekly assignments and regular testing, and include virtual labs and live interactive chat sessions with students and faculty. While the coursework can be completed online, the clinical requirements must be fulfilled at the Columbus, Ohio campus. Students in the on-site option meet in a traditional classroom setting and participate in clinical learning experiences within a group.


Hands-on Experience

In Chamberlain’s SIMCARETM Center, students are offered a safe environment to practice their skills and take the lead in caring for their patient. Armed with increased confidence and advanced knowledge from the center, students then participate in on-site clinicals in local healthcare institutions.


LPN to RN Bridge Option

LPN students are awarded up to 10 credit hours (three in liberal arts electives and seven in nursing) of proficiency credit toward the Associate Degree in Nursing. These hours are awarded through the Chamberlain College of Nursing Articulation Plan (CCAP) and represent credit for knowledge gained in qualifying practical nurse education programs.
