Shortly after the deadline, the ADN Program Admission Committee meets to review the admission rubrics, rank students, and determine who is admitted to the program. The rubrics are not attached to any indentifying student characteristics besides the student ID number. This allows the Committee to review the rubrics using non-discriminatory practices.
The top 24 ranked students are offered conditional admission to the ADN Program. All applicants are notified in writing of their admission status within four weeks after the Admission Committee’s meeting.
Admission is conditional. This means that students must meet certain criteria before starting the program. The criteria are as follows:
Students must have a “C” or better in all prerequisites and program courses and a 2.5 minimum Program G.P.A. All courses and the Program G.P.A. will be reassessed at the end of the semester in which the student applied to determine if the student is still eligible for the ADN Program
Students must submit their acceptance letter by the deadline
Students must have a physician complete the Health and Immunization Record Form and have updated immunizations and proof of CPR certification. The completed form should be submitted by the deadline
Students must complete a drug screen prior to beginning the program.
Verify that the CNA is active and in "good standing," meaning the background check is clear of disqualifying offenses (or a state-granted waiver is documented) and the student has maintained active certification.
To ensure cerfification is active, a letter from a recent employer may be required.
If currently enrolled in a nurse assistant training programs students must successfully pass the written competency exam before the program begins.
Students not meeting all of the above criteria forfeit their admission and the open position is filled from the alternate list.
After the top ranked students are extended conditional admission, an alternate list of other qualified students is developed in the event that someone should cancel or not meet the conditional admission criteria. To remain eligible, students must continue to meet all eligibility requirements. Up to the day prior to the first nursing course, the alternates may be notified. The ADN program does not maintain a waitlist. If not admitted, students must reapply to the program each semester.
