September 23, 2019

WESTERVILLE, Ohio - Hondros College of Nursing will launch a new Direct Entry Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) option this fall. The Direct Entry ADN Option gives students the opportunity to become a registered nurse without prior nursing experience by earning their Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) in as few as 15 months if attending full time.

“This program is ideal for students seeking to change careers and begin a nursing program immediately who can transfer in 32 semester credits or 48 quarter credits of prior college experience,” said Harry Wilkins, Chief Executive Officer of Hondros College of Nursing. “This option is geared toward those students who may be sitting on waiting lists at other schools or who already have a non-nursing degree.”

No prior nursing experience is necessary for this option and classes will begin October 7 at all five Hondros College of Nursing locations in Ohio, including Columbus (Westerville), Cincinnati (West Chester), Cleveland (Independence), Dayton (Fairborn) and Toledo (Maumee).

In addition to Hondros College of Nursing’s admissions requirements, applicants must:

  • Transfer in 32 semester credits/48 quarter credits of prior college experience
  • Have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher from prior college experience
  • Take the HESI entrance exam and earn a cumulative score of 75 or higher.  HESI sections include: Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, Grammar, Math, Anatomy & Physiology, and Biology
