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.

If you are currently in our program, please join our closed Facebook group: Panola College ADN.


The Program is approved by the Board of Nursing for the State of Texas and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta. GA 30326 (1-404-975-5000).
