The Mississippi Organization for Associate Degree Nursing believes that associate degree nursing offers an affordable opportunity for men & women to enter the nursing profession as a registered nurse.
We believe that it is important for ADN programs to ensure that opportunity. Therefore, MOADN is a state organization primarily interested in working to retain the Registered Nurse title and scope of practice for the associate degree nurse.
The organization is also interested in working for nurses to have an easy transition from ADN to BSN if so chosen. In addition, MOADN works to assure quality health care for consumers by being involved with all issues concerning nursing.
Associate degree nursing graduates have proven their ability to successfully pass the RN examination and perform safe, ethical nursing. The current RN examination tests a core of nursing knowledge & skills that is necessary for graduates of all nursing programs to function at a safe, minimum level of practice. ADN graduates tend to work in the local community where they are educated. ADN educational programs meet the need of a large number of adult learners, minorities & local residents by providing accessibility.
