NOTE about Prerequisite and Pre-Admission Courses:
The nursing program does not time-out courses. However, you may only take prerequisite and pre-admission courses a maximum of twice within five years of applying to be considered as a candidate for the PN Program.
Point Selection System:
An independent selection committee reviews completed applications and objectively selects the 24 nursing student candidates with the top scores. Also, alternates are selected should one of the 24 students choose not to participate in the program. We do not keep a waiting list.

The points you may assign yourself are not necessarily the points that the selection committee will assign your application.
The Practical Nursing Program can only accommodate a limited number of candidates per session. Therefore, there can be no guarantee of admission even when prerequisite courses are successfully completed. Applications are reviewed by an objective selection process without regard to race, religion, sex, ethnic background, age, or disability status so far as it is safe for the student and the client in their care.
Acceptance and successful progression through the Practical Nursing Program is contingent upon willingness to complete required immunizations, results of a Federal criminal background check, and random drug screen(s).
