- Any application without the completed required documents will not be eligible for the candidate pool.
- All candidates are required to take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) testing version 5. The College Benchmark score is 62%. Candidates who have taken the TEAS previously MUST see the nursing department for directions on providing scores along with the application.**Students who have taken version 5 before but did not score a 62%, must score a 62% on each section.
- Each semester, following the application deadline, the most qualified candidates are admitted to the Nursing Program. In the event the Nursing program has received applications for more than the allotted seats, the selection process is done by lottery process.
- All candidates accepted into the Nursing program must attend a mandatory orientation meeting. Also, there will be two highly recommended six week classes:
- Orientation to Nursing (Nursing 520)
- Nursing Boot Camp (Nursing 540)
- If a student does not attend the mandatory orientation meeting, his/her position will immediately be given to an alternate candidate. Both classes are offered during the Winter Intercession for spring semester and summer session for fall semester.
- All classes in the Nursing program must be completed with a "C" or better grade in order to advance to the next course within the program and to earn the degree of Associate in Science in Nursing.
- In addition, enrolled students are required to take a series of mandatory ATI content mastery examinations after the completion of each course in the nursing program.
After a student is admitted into the Nursing program, a full time load is considered a minimum of 9 units per semester.
- Transfer students from other nursing programs will be evaluated on an individual basis. This process requires a completed application, college catalog, letter from the former program director and course syllabus for all successfully completed nursing courses.
- Transfer students must meet the admission requirements for our program's generic nursing students. Transfer students must also follow the same application procedure as general students in order to apply to the program. Space for transfer students is very limited.
- Please contact the Nursing Department to see if transfer students are being accepted at this time.
