Associate Degree Nursing Program Information

University Transfer

General education and science courses taken at Durham Tech can transfer to a university. University bachelor of science programs grant students credit for having earned their RN degree. Nursing courses taken at Durham Tech are not transferred on a one-to-one basis. Mobility/articulation plans are available for Durham Tech's ADN graduates.

Clinicals

The classroom portion of the program is taught during the day. Clinical experiences are usually scheduled during the day for six- and eight-hour shifts. However, because of the availability of clinical units, it may be necessary for you to attend clinical experiences in the evening or on weekends or work a 12-hour shift.

Merit based scholarships

The College Foundation of North Carolina offers merit based scholarships for nursing students. The Nurse Education Scholarship and loan program is for nursing students only. Nursing students may also be eligible for Health, Science, and Mathematics Scholarships. Students must apply directly to SEAA for consideration. View more information on the Nurse Education Scholarship-Loan Program (NESLP) website.
