Earn an Associate Degree in Nursing

Geisinger School of Nursing offers one program of study in professional nursing that awards an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). Graduates are eligible to apply for the National Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN) to become a Registered Nurse. 

To complete the ADN program, students must complete 70 credits — 46 credits offered by the school and 24 credits of college courses offered by Harrisburg Area Community College. Or you can complete these 24 credits at a college of your choice.

If you’re an LPN, you can complete the program sooner.

As an LPN, you’re eligible for advanced placement and granted nine credits when you: 

  • Meet all admission and prerequisite requirements 
  • Are a graduate of a board-approved program 
  • Have a current LPN license and is in good standing
  • Meet all written work and testing with satisfactory performance in the transition course to continue in the program* 

*Additional theory and clinical time may be recommended, even if advanced standing is granted.
