North Dakota Nursing Schools

LPN to ADN is an option that can be considered by people who want to obtain a nursing degree. An associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) is perfect for people who want to start practicing as a registered nurse. This program not only prepares the foundation of becoming a successful registered nurse but it also prepares students to take and pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). ADN programs are offered at different community colleges and universities. The requirements to enroll in ADN programs differ from state to state and from one educational institute to another. LPN to ADN programs are less expensive and require half the amount that is required to complete a 4-year BSN program. However, most ADN nurses complete a BSN degree later on. This creates a change in their professional life and helps them get a better salary and a promotion.

National Estimates for Registered Nurses in North Dakota

(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a “year-round, full-time” hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(9) The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.
