The associate's degree in nursing (ADN) program is an excellent option for those striving to become registered nurses. One major advantage of the ADN program is that it generally only takes two years to complete, making this a much speedier option than four-year bachelor’s degree programs.

An additional advantage of the ADN program is the relative flexibility of its schedule. Schools frequently offer part-time programs or evening classes, which enables students to work and study simultaneously. Certain ADN programs offer additional features that potential students may find appealing. For instance, Bainbridge Stage College's program has a core curriculum of science and humanities courses, specially designed to complement its courses in nursing. Every program carries its own unique strengths and attributes.
