Transition to Associate Degree Nursing / RN Program Description (Track Two)

Thank you for your interest in the Transition to Associate Degree Nursing / RN degree track of Eastern Florida State College's Registered Nurse Associate of Science Degree. The Transition to Associate Degree Nursing / RN track is a 13-month hybrid program designed especially for Licensed Practical Nurses, Paramedics, and registered/certified Respiratory Therapists who carry a license in the state of Florida.

This program is geared towards those health care workers who wish to be awarded advanced standing in the Eastern Florida State College ADN program. It is a limited access program with a special application process in addition to the primary EFSC student application.

The goal of Eastern Florida State College's Nursing Institute is to provide students with an education that will prepare them to be lifelong learners, responsible community members and productive health care providers in a rapidly changing world.

The Associate Degree Nursing Program (RN), established in 1966, is designed to produce a well-rounded nurse who is able to think critically, make appropriate decisions, communicate effectively and function as a member of a health team in providing holistic care to culturally diverse clients.

The Nursing programs at EFSC —the Associate Degree Nursing / RN, the Transition to Associate Degree Nursing / RN, Practical Nursing and Patient Care Assistant (Certified Nursing Assistant) — are all currently approved by the Florida Board of Nursing (Department of Health). The Associate Degree nursing education program is a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
