The Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) Program has a long history of successful graduates dating back to 1964. Mildred Montag was the founder of the program. Graduates of the program have consistently exceeded state passing rates on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and are in great demand by employers.
Three program tracks are available for students.
- The Traditional ASN track is best for individuals who can attend college courses on campus with clinical rotations occurring on a variety of days and times. The program is completed in four semesters over two academic years.
- The LPN-ASN track is an asynchronous online evening program with clinical two to three days a month designed for LPNs who wish to become RNs. The program is completed in three consecutive semesters, including summer with clinical learning activities occurring in the Fairmont, WV region.
- The Weekend-Hybrid ASN track is for non-traditional students or students who have already have a degree. The program is offered on weekends and is completed in four consecutive semesters, including summer.
The ASN nursing program enhances learning through clinical experiences in the authentic arena (hospitals, clinics, community settings), in our state-of-the-art simulation, and our skills labs.
