  • Have a Healthcare Provider Sign-Off on the Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities

    Click Here for the Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities (PDF)

    The Associate Degree of Nursing program is a practice discipline with cognitive, sensory, affective, and psychomotor performance requirements. Based on these requirements the Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities have been developed. Each standard has an example of activities which a student will be required to perform, with or without an accommodation, while enrolled in the ADN program at Manhattan Tech. The Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities should be used as a guide to assist applicants in determining whether or not accommodations or modifications are necessary in order to meet program participation requirements.

    Applicants who identify potential difficulties with meeting the Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities should communicate their concerns to the Director of Nursing. If the concern is related to a documented disability, applicants are responsible for contacting the Student Retention Specialist. Determination of reasonable and appropriate accommodation will be made on an individual basis in consultation with the Student Retention Specialist. Additionally, applicants should assess their aptitude and ability to perform professional duties by reviewing the Nursing Essential Skills and Functional Abilities and discussing them with
    their healthcare provider.
