CCAC's ADN Program at California University

This degree is intended for those who have not already completed a nursing program.  

Through a collaborative relationship between CCAC and Cal U, students attend classes on the Cal U campus. Faculty from CCAC offer the nursing courses at Cal U, while Cal U faculty offer the non-nursing courses. This leads to the Associate of Science Degree in Nursing (ADN) from CCAC.

A graduate of the CCAC ADN program is eligible to take the licensure examination to become a Registered Nurse. The ADN graduate who becomes licensed may then apply for entry into the California University of Pennsylvania RN-BSN program in order to complete additional coursework leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).

The CCAC nursing program begins every January.  This is a competitive program and seating is limited. Pre-nursing students MUST apply to California University of Pennsylvania and the Community College of Allegheny County by August 15th to be considered for acceptance into the program.  Pre-nursing students MUST ALSO complete the following requirements set forth by CCAC BEFORE submitting their application.
