Students in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program study the biological, physical, and behavioral sciences to prepare them for the nursing curriculum. The program prepares graduates to assist a diverse patient population within the community through health maintenance, as well as caring for them across the lifespan, through illness, injury, or disability. Utilizing a patient-centered approach, the program prepares graduates to care for their patients through evidence-based practice, critical thinking skills, innovation and creativity, and excellent communication skills. Upon graduation, the registered nurse will lead, manage, and coordinate care with other health care disciplines within our community. The program is based on the fundamental core values of caring, diversity, ethics. excellence, holism, integrity, and patient-centeredness. Graduates receive the Associate in Applied Sciences degree in Nursing (ADN) and are eligible to take the licensure exam for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN).

The following minimum requirements must be satisfied before application to the Nursing
program. Prior to application for the Nursing program, the student must:
Currently a CBI is required for all students applying for any Health Science program except: Physical Education, Phlebotomy, and Histologic Tech*.
Criminal Background Investigations & Drug Screens
Michigan law requires criminal background screening for individuals working in most health care settings and facilities. Students in a Health Science Program are affected by this law. Conviction of a criminal offense (felony or misdemeanor) may make a student ineligible to be assigned to a clinical site, making program completion and graduation unattainable.
The start-up packet provides instruction regarding the process to complete and submit the background investigation. Students will not be admitted to any health science program without a clear CBI.
*In some cases, clinical sites may require students to complete additional background investigation and submit to drug screening procedures prior to or during the clinical experience. All background investigations and drug screenings are at the student’s expense.
Conviction of a criminal offense may also make graduates of health science program ineligible for state or national licensure/certification at program completion. All applicants for a health profession license in Michigan are required to submit fingerprints and undergo a criminal background investigation prior to licensure/certification.
Program coordinators, faculty, and staff cannot give legal advice to any student regarding potential eligibility/ineligibility based on prior convictions or negative findings on the criminal background investigation. The student should consult an attorney for questions specific to his/her individual case.
The ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is designed to assess a student’s preparedness to enter the health science field. At Mott Community College, students must take the TEAS as part of the basic eligibility requirements for entry into the Associate degree in Nursing program.
The TEAS measures basic essential skills in the academic content areas of reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage. The objectives assessed on the TEAS are those that are deemed most relevant to measure entry-level academic readiness of nursing program applicants.
Registered nurses are individually licensed and regulated by the State of Michigan. Nursing is recognized as a separate occupation by the Michigan Public Health Code. Nurses are licensed to ensure that the public receives a high level of care consistent with the law and the standards of the State and the State Board of Nursing. Licensed practical nurses may not practice individually. Rather, they function under the supervision of a registered nurse or licensed physician or dentist.
More information regarding licensure as a registered nurse in Michigan can be found
at the Michigan Department of Licensing & Regulatory Affairs.
Licensing & Regulation of Nursing in Michigan FAQs
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is a not-for-profit organization whose members include the boards of nursing in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and four US territories. NCSBN is the vehicle through which boards of nursing act and counsel together to provide regulatory excellence for public health, safety, and welfare. The Michigan Board of Nursing is a member of the NCSBN.
The NCLEX-RN is developed and owned by the NCSBN. NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) is a nationwide examination used for the licensing of nurses in the United States since 1994. To ensure public protection, each board of nursing requires a candidate for licensure to pass the NCLEX examination for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN) or practical nurses (NCLEX-PN). The NCLEX examinations are designed to test the knowledge, skills, and abilities essential for the safe and effective practice of nursing at the entry level.
After program completion, a graduate from the ADN Nursing program at Mott Community
College takes the NCLEX-RN to receive his or her registered nursing license. A nursing
license gives the individual permission to practice nursing in the state that issues
the license. The current expected level of achievement on the NCLEX-RN is an 85% pass
rate for first-time testers.

As part of the accreditation process, Mott’s Nursing Program is required to calculate ‘on-time’ completion of the Nursing Program by its graduates. Calculation of Program Completion begins with the enrollment on the first day of the first nursing course and ends with the completion of the final nursing course. For our program, ‘on-time’ would be completion of all nursing courses (NRSG 110, 120, 121, 130, 210, 220, 230, 240, and 250) within 6 consecutive semesters.
Expected Level of Achievement: 80% of graduating students will complete the nursing program "on-time."
Please see the most recent completion rates below:
|Year||Cohort||Total # Graduates||% Graduating On-time|
Reasons for not graduating on-time include non-progression/academic failure or voluntary stop out due to personal or medical circumstances. If a student is unsuccessful, they have to apply for readmission, which is not guaranteed. Additionally, readmission may be delayed due to the need to complete required remediation or lack of available clinical placement.
Employment/Job Placement Surveys are sent to Nursing Program graduates after program completion. Data gathered from graduates includes the rate of employment as a registered nurse, working status (FT or PT), and work setting. The following represents employment rates for the past three years.
