An Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) is the foundation for starting a career in nursing. It is a two-to-three year nursing and liberal arts program that will prepare students for their next step in nursing, whether it is becoming a Registered Nurse (RN), a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), or another type of healthcare professional.

Getting your ADN in New York is a popular choice among students as job growth in the state of New York is growing and expected to continue growing over the new few years. One of the biggest benefits to earning your ADN is that you can complete it in two years, allowing you to enter the field early on and start your training and experience as soon as possible. There is a high demand for nurses of all levels in New York for several reasons.

One reason is the increase in population. New York was the fourth largest state in the United States in terms of population.

Popular ADN Careers

One of the most popular careers from students after receiving an Associate's Degree in Nursing is a Registered Nurse (RN). This isn - t surprising as the job of a Registered Nurse is an attractive one as you are required to be an RN for most advanced nursing degree programs.

Another popular career from students who get their ADN is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Also called licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), these nurses provide basic nursing care and work under the supervision of RN’s and may reinforce teaching and instructions such as how family members should care for a relative. They also may collect samples for testing or feed patients who need help eating. In order to become an LPN/LVN, you must also pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN).

NCLEX-RN and Licensure Tests

The job of an RN is to work with physicians and specialists to provide patient care. They may administer medication, perform diagnostic tests and analyze the results, record medical histories, and explain after treatment instructions. In order to become an RN, you must pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN).

This is a 5-hour, multiple choice test with a minimum of 75 questions that every state board of nursing uses in order to determine whether or not a candidate is ready for entry-level nursing practice. The test includes four categories: Safe, Effective Care Environment; Health Promotion and Maintenance; Psychosocial Integrity; and Physiological Integrity.

As you make your decision on whether or not to get your Associates Degree in Nursing and where you might get your degree from, a college or university in New York is something to consider. The state holds many high-ranking, accredited schools with notable programs that will help launch your nursing career.
