Nursing Department - Welcome

Greetings!

As a prospective student, we are thrilled with your interest in our program. It is my pleasure to welcome you to Pierce College Associate Degree Nursing Program (ADN). Our nursing program is new to the South Puget Sound area. As a new program, we have a unique opportunity to create and design an academically enriched environment, coupled with compassion and caring-the art of nursing-that enables our students to address the holistic needs of people in their care.

Our goal is to ensure that all individuals have an equal opportunity to "shine" during their tenure as students. We believe in supporting and assisting students in their endeavor toward achieving the next step in the academic journey in becoming a registered nurse: being accepted into an Associate Degree in Nursing Program.

The Pierce College Nursing Program is distinctive. We are built on a foundation of respect and openness to change. We strive to meet the needs of our diverse community by training qualified registered nurses and developing each student's abilities. Our commitment to quality nursing education and teaching excellence prepares learners to live and work successfully as registered nurses in an ever-changing healthcare environment.

I urge you to consider our program as a means to pursuing your ADN degree. Please take advantage of the rich resources that are available to you at Pierce College. Remember, the faculty and staff of the Pierce College Nursing Program supports you in your endeavor in acquiring your ADN degree and becoming a registered nurse.
