Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society

The objective of the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society of the National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing shall be to recognize the academic excellence of students in the study of Associate Degree Nursing. The Society shall encourage the pursuit of advanced degrees in the profession of nursing as well as in continuing education as a life-long professional responsibility in the profession of nursing.

Please note: Beginning in the fall of 2017, Aquinas will no longer offer degrees in arts and sciences, business and nursing, nor provide residential housing and student life activities. Aquinas will focus its academic programming on the School of Education and on course offerings in philosophy and theology.
