ADN Program Details

The Department of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences offers instruction in clinical experience in a variety of hospitals, healthcare facilities and community agencies in the Bronx and other easily accessible areas. Nursing students are expected to pick up their assignment the day before the scheduled clinical begins. This may involve coming to the College campus.

Academic Requirements:

-A passing score on both the CUNY/ACT Reading and Writing Skills Assessment Tests.
-A score of 35/30 on M1 and M2 of the Math COMPASS (this score is required for admission into PHM 10).
-A cumulative G.P.A. of 2.5 in the pre-clinical sequence (CMS 11, PSY 11, ENG 10/11, BIO 23, PHM 10).
-A grade of C+ or better in PHM 10 and BIO 23. These courses may be repeated once to achieve a C+ or better.
-A grade of C or better in BIO 24 and BIO 28 when taken as of the fall 2009 semester and thereafter. BIO 24 and BIO 28 may be repeated once to achieve a C grade or better.
-A grade of C or better in CMS 11, ENG 10/11 and PSY 11 when taken as of the fall 2009 semester and thereafter. If a student earns a passing grade that is lower than the required C, and repeats the course, the repeat grade will not be counted for admission into the nursing program.
