The Associate Degree in Nursing program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) for registered nurses. Students at College of Saint Mary may do the course of study in two years if they have the required pre-requisites or in three years. Then, following successful completion of the NCLEX students are expected to continue on and complete their Bachelorís in Nursing. Students may work as a fully functioning Registered Nurse while completing the Bachelorís degree. The Bachelorís courses can be completed in one year by attending classes one day a week or by taking the courses in a hybrid environment in which all work is on-line and students meet for class three times during each of the two semesters.
