Earn an Associates Degree in Nursing in Missouri

There are many benefits associated with becoming a registered nurse (RN) in Missouri, including a good salary and job stability, even during recessions. The average salary for RNs in Missouri is $65,900 per year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

There are several ways one can become an RN. The shortest route is by earning an associate degree in nursing, or ADN. There are basically only three steps to obtaining an ADN in Missouri, like in all other states. The first step begins with enrolling in a state-approved training program. In addition to classroom instruction, your ADN program will provide you with training in a clinical setting that will simulate actual healthcare environments. To enter an ADN program in Missouri, like in rest of the United States, you can expect to fulfill such common requirements as a physical exam, a criminal background check, and a program entry exam.

The next step to becoming an ADN in Missouri, like all over the country, is to take and pass your NCLEX-RN licensing exam. You must complete this step successfully before you can be licensed as an registered nurse.
