Education through creative pathways and partnerships
The Associate Degree Nursing Program is a pathway program designed to allow LPNs from an accredited and/or NYSED approved program to transfer into the program at the Rochester General College of Health Careers (RGCOHC). This program is designed specifically for the LPN, and will build upon the knowledge and skills that an LPN possesses while focusing on the role transition to RN - specifically further development of clinical judgment and critical thinking. The completed foundation of general education courses is key to this transition.
Students enter as a freshman and complete four traditional semesters and one micro semester, for a total of 66 weeks of instruction.
Students may also enter into year two and complete two-and-a-half (2.5) semesters for a total of 36 weeks of instruction.
