Registered Nursing

Health and Safety Sciences Division: Registered Nursing

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program can be completed in four semesters following admission to the program. In addition, students need at least two semesters to complete the prerequisites for admission to the program.

Enrollment packets are accepted on an ongoing basis. Multiple screening criteria was implemented for students admitted in fall 2015 or later. 

Completed enrollment packets and satisfactory ATI TEAS results must be on file in the Health and Safety Sciences Division (Nursing Department Office) by March 1 for consideration for admission in fall and by September 1 for consideration for admission in spring.


**Due to the recent COVID-19 closure, the Health and Safety Sciences department will be extending the deadline for spring 2021 consideration. Complete packets must be turned in no later than October 1, 2020. Incomplete packets will not be considered.**


The ADN curriculum is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). The curriculum meets the requirements of the BRN for eligibility to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The student who completes the program is eligible to apply for an Associate in Science degree. Students must be admitted to the Associate Degree Nursing Program in order to enroll in nursing science classes.
