Promoting Excellence in Nursing

The mission of the Associate Degree Nursing program is to facilitate an educational environment to foster the development of caring, ethical, competent, novice professional nurses. As such, we contribute to the progression of the nursing profession.

The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Panola College is to provide high quality education to individuals in the community seeking a career as a registered nurse and to promote the transition of the Licensed Vocational Nurse into the role of the professional nurse. Upon completion of the course of study, the student is prepared to take the National Council Licensure examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a registered nurse.

Degree Options

The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) prepares graduates to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam to become a registered nurse.  Two options are offered at Panola College:

  • The Traditional Program is taught over 24 months with summers off
  • The LVN Hybrid Transition track will be taught over 12 months, offered in a flexible format with classes online and clinicals provided in the evenings and weekends within a 70 mile radius of Carthage, TX.
  • Please be advised that as of fall 2015, graduates of the ADN Program at Panola College may no longer take the NCLEX-RN in Louisiana. The LSBN does not recognize a program with fewer than 72 semester credit hours.
