DIRECT ENTRY ADN Option
Do you have college credit and a dream of becoming a nurse? Or, have you been working hard in college, but now that you’re a couple years in, it feels like you’re going nowhere fast?
Our Direct Entry ADN Option gives students the opportunity to earn their Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), to become a registered nurse, without prior nursing experience, in as few as 15 months if attending full time.
This Direct Entry ADN Option is available at all Ohio campus locations near Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, and Toledo. Classes begin quarterly.
If you have military medic training, we can evaluate your credit toward enrollment in our Direct Entry ADN option.
In addition to Hondros College of Nursing’s admissions requirements, applicants for the Direct Entry ADN Option must:
- 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
- Transfer in 32 semester/48 quarter credits of prior college experience. General education courses must have a grade equivalent to a C- or better earned.
