Q: Where can I find a list of pre-requisites?
A: Please consult the Admission Guide. Entrance requirements are listed on page 1, and support courses on page 5. Entrance requirements MUST be completed prior to admission. We strongly encourage students to complete as many of the Nursing support courses as possible prior to beginning the Nursing sequence. The grades earned from the support courses determine points earned toward your admission rating.
Q: Do you require the TEAS test or another entrance exam?
A: Not at this time.
Q: Will classes I am taking Spring Quarter count toward my points for admissions?
A: No. Only classes that are posted on your transcript and submitted by the application deadline will be counted toward your points.
Q: If I take a pre-nursing course at another college, will my credits transfer?
A: The way this is determined is by submitting your official transcripts from other schools and completing a Transcript Evaluation request form (last page of Admission Guide). Once your transcripts are evaluated by our Admissions Office, you will be able to print a Degree Audit. The Degree Audit will show you how your credits transferred over.
