Associate Degree Nursing Program
The Nursing Program consists of courses in liberal arts and selected sciences, as well as nursing courses. Each required nursing course must be taken in a designated sequence as knowledge builds from less complex to more complex. Each nursing course is made up of a theoretical and a clinical component. Students must successfully meet the objectives of both of these components and demonstrate increasing proficiency on all drug calculation exams that start at a minimum of 80%, in order to achieve a passing grade (of at least a C, defined as 73%) in each nursing course.
Nursing students must comply with the rules and policies as presented in the AD Nursing Student Handbook and Attendance Policy , in addition to those listed in the catalog. Students, who meet criteria for readmission into the program, must comply with the Nursing Student Handbook that is in place for the class to which they have been readmitted.
The Associate Degree Nursing Program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. The Associate Degree Nursing Program at Bucks County Community College located in Newtown, PA is accredited by the: Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)
