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."

The Associate Degree Nursing (A.D.N.) 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 A.D.N. 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.
