ADN Program Details
This is a full time, 4 semester (summers not included) program which meets during the day. Days and times vary per semester.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensing Exam for licensure as a registered nurse. Graduates may also transfer their units to any 4-year college or university if a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing (BSN) is desired.
The Nursing Program has implemented a new Admissions Policy. Commencing with the Spring 2011 semester, 10% of the students will be selected from the current wait-list and 90% of the students will be selected using the new multi-criteria point system.
This change in the admissions policy was done under the guidance and recommendations from the California Community College Chancellor's Office - Nursing Advisory Committee. You may choose to submit your application with only the five pre-requisites completed, however, completion of ALL the coursework listed in the application will provide you with more points and a better ranking.
