Associate Degree Nursing


The Blinn College District Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program is a two-year course of study preparing men and women to serve as nurses in our community and beyond. In addition to the two-year track (taught at the Health Science Center Campus in Bryan), Blinn has an LVN-Transition Program (taught at the Health Science Center Campus, the Brenham Campus) that accepts Licensed Vocational Nurses and prepares them to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) in one year. Blinn also offers the opportunity for students to transfer into its program from other nursing programs from other colleges/universities.

The ADN Program has highly qualified faculty, experienced in a variety of healthcare areas who work closely with students in the simulated practice laboratory and in actual clinical settings. 

In addition we have:
