Associate Degree Nursing

The next step up in your health care career.

Our associate degree nursing program is designed as a bridge from Licensed Practical Nursing to Professional Nursing. Additional prerequisite courses, and two semesters of nursing courses provide the  knowledge and hands-on skills you need to move up in the nursing field.

Through a combination of classroom learning, simulations and clinical experiences, you’ll have the opportunity to develop the nursing skills that will make you stand out in the job market.

The program is designed to prepare you to care for patients under the supervision of a physician or other health providers. This includes not only clinical patient-care skills, but also soft skills such as professionalism and effective communication.

The course prepares students for the licensing exam for Registered Nurses, called the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN exam).

Students first must complete several prerequisites before being accepted into this program. See Prerequisite Information for details.

For the 11th year, the Salina Area Technical College campus was littered with a variety of vehicles. Hundreds of cars, trucks and in between were on display Saturday morning for folks to enjoy at the school’s Vehicle Extravaganza.

“Most are local, but some travel from out-of-state for this event,” said SATC marketing and advertising specialist Mike Strand. “In addition to vehicles on display – not only cars, but also antique farm equipment, trucks and even custom bicycles.”

Originally started by a former recruiter of Salina Tech, Blane Schloo, the event raises funds for scholarships as well as giving the public a chance to view and appreciate the campus and the opportunities it has to offer, while also enjoying some amazing sights on four and two wheels.
