Become a Registered Nurse

4-6 semesters of coursework or LPN credentials plus 2-3 semesters; either leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (ADN)



Currently the top rung on the Nursing Career Ladder at the College of Menominee Nation is the program leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (ADN). This degree makes you eligible to take the NCLEX examination (RN). Upon successful completion of the exam, you are granted the credentials of Registered Nurse (RN). As an RN, you have opportunities for a respected and rewarding career in one of the fastest growing fields of employment. Your job options can include employment in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, home health agencies, industry or business settings, and in many entrepreneurial occupations.


If you are a Licensed Practical Nurse with work experience, you may be able to enter the LPN-RN Bridge Program as an advance-standing student.


As a nursing graduate of the College of Menominee Nation, you will have the added value of CMN's unique, transcultural curriculum that respects the diversity and cultural influences of your patients/clients.  Recognizing and honoring the ways of life, biological diversity, and cultural beliefs and practices of those you care for can enhance the therapeutic relationship and delivery of care.  As a student nurse in the CMN program, you will study and reflect on your own cultural perspectives as a necessary preparation for understanding the worldview of your future patients/clients.


What does an RN do?

New graduates of the College’s ADN program are “nurse generalists,” qualified for providing quality care in entry-level positions. As a nurse, you will work closely with physicians and other healthcare team members to promote or restore patients’ health. Your work will include both physical and psychological support of the patient, and the patient’s family and friends. This can include setting goals for the patient and others, educating, providing therapeutic treatment and medication, measuring health outcomes against standards, and assuring quality and the continuity of care.
