Typically, we accept between 45-48 students in the traditional class, 45-48 students in the LPN-RN class, and 20-24 students in the Paramedic-RN class.
You may take the entrance exams at any time. The exams must be completed before the application deadline. You can apply to the nursing program before an entrance exam is taken. Both the entrance exam and application must be completed prior to the application deadlines.
Upon acceptance into the program, orientation information will be mailed to you with your acceptance letter. At the orientation, nursing faculty will review everything that is required. A few of the requirements are immunizations, CPR certification, background checks and random drug screens. Detailed information will be discussed during new nursing student orientation.
The best advice is to do well in all of your classes. Your GPA is calculated based on the nursing general education core curriculum only. It is a competitive program and the better grades that you have, the better your chance at being accepted.
