ADN Program Details
Cuesta College has a successful and well-respected Associate in Science Degree Program for Nursing. The curriculum is based on caring. A variety of clinical settings and diverse faculty give students a well-rounded education. Students in the program participate in community based internships and preceptorships. Students are given the tools to become successful members of a healthcare team and are encouraged to continue their education after graduation.
Class selection is determined using the multi-criteria screening process established by the California Community College Chancellor's Office. A multi-criteria score is determined for each candidate based on previous degrees / relevant certificates, prerequisite coursework GPA, science/English repeats, work/volunteer experience in healthcare, life/special circumstances, language proficiency, and an assessment test score. Program admission will be offered to highest scoring eligible applicants. If there is a tie among applicants, a computer random selection will break the tie and finalize the ranking of applicants. Applicants who are not admitted to the program will need to reapply during the next application period; there is no wait list for the RN program.
