OADN Leads the Effort for
Associate Degree Nursing
OADN’s purpose is to ensure that the voice of associate degree nursing is heard and represented anywhere decisions are made that affect our programs, faculty, and students.
We have made great strides in recent years. Leaders in government, non-profit organizations, and industry now seek out the counsel and input of associate degree nursing. OADN will continue to see that associate degree nursing is respected, equitably resourced, and recognized for our contributions to the health and welfare of the nation.
