ADN Program Admission Requirements
Admission to the Nursing Program is selective due to the limited number of spaces available in courses that require clinical practice in hospitals and other health care settings. Selection is based on an objective point system. All students who meet the admission criteria are ranked according to: grades earned in general education courses required for the A.A.S. degree. Applicants will be awarded five points for each A grade; three points for each B grade and one point for each C grade. No points awarded for D and F grades. The cumulative score earned from completed course work is added to the overall ATI-TEAS score. Applications are rank ordered and the most qualified candidates are offered a seat for admission into the nursing program. ATI-TEAS is required.
