Welcome to the SAC RN Program Website!
The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program at Santa Ana College (SAC) is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The program is designed to qualify the student for the licensure examination and entry into practice as a Registered Nurse (RN). Additionally, completion of the ADN degree prepares a student to transfer to a four-year institution for completion of a baccalaureate degree. The curriculum follows the SAC Conceptual Framework for Nursing.
The Nursing Program Learning Outcome is: "the nursing graduate has completed the Registered Nursing Program and is able to function knowledgeably, safely, and effectively in nursing practice within a variety of health care settings and will be qualified for the licensing examination."

ADVANCED PLACEMENT/LVN-RN Entry NEWS:
The SAC Nursing Program is accepting
applications for advance placement to 2nd
and 4th semester only. See the Advanced Placement/LVN-RN Entry
Information page for directions.
The 3rd semester entry list is over 100 and, therefore, we are currently not
accepting any applications to 3rd
semester unless the prospective student works at St. Joseph Hospital of
Orange. Please contact Rowena Valtairo at firstname.lastname@example.org for
questions. We will begin accept applications to 3rd semester when the entry
list decreases below 25 names.
Letters of "Continued Interest" will be emailed in May to every prospective student on the entry lists. If a student does not respond to the letter by the stated deadline, the student's name will be removed from the entry list.
