Nursing at Brookhaven

​The Nursing program at Brookhaven will prepare you for a career in health care that allows you to make a difference in people's lives. Our faculty draw on their knowledge and experience to ensure student success.

Brookhaven’s Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is an accelerated program in which students attend classes through 16 consecutive months, including summers. Successful completion of the program leads to an Associate Degree Nursing AAS (Associate of Applied Science degree).

After completion of prerequisite classes and admission to the ADN program, courses are completed in four 16-week academic semesters. Students need to plan for two to three hours of studying and preparation time for each hour of class and clinical experience. The demands of the program are such that students may not be able to work full time while enrolled.

Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, commonly referred to as the NCLEX-RN. Our program, which began in 2003, has exceptional outcomes with high retention rates and excellent nursing board scores.

Note: Support courses completed at colleges and universities outside of D​​​allas College must be approved for transfer credit prior to the semester in which the course is required as stipulated in the curriculum outline.
