ADN Programs in Minnesota

Earn an Associates Degree in Nursing in Minnesota

Do you have your heart set on beginning a career in healthcare? Does an average salary of $80,960 per year sound great to you? If your answers are "yes" to both of these questions, a career as a registered nurse (RN) may be the best choice for you! There is presently a large demand for RNs in Minnesota, and the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that this demand will increase in the many years to come.

Of course, you will need to obtain the proper training and license before you can qualify for a job as a registered nurse. The shortest route to becoming an RN is earning an ADN, which takes just two years! Another great benefit to choosing an ADN program in Minnesota, and in rest of the United States, is that after you complete your training, you will have all of the knowledge you need to pass the national licensing exam for registered nurses, the NCLEX-RN.

The NCLEX-RN licensing exam is administered through the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. If you do not receive passing scores on your exam, you can repeat it after 45 days.
