A previous announcement stated that a WATCH criminal background check was required as part of the nursing application process. This is no longer a requirement. The only background check that a student must complete as part of the application process is the national background check for the ADN Pre-Admission Applicant.
Nursing Advising Overhaul - Fall 2015
We are anticipating some major changes in the nursing advising process and will continue to keep you updated as changes are made. Please continue to check back for updates on these changes.
UW Bothell - Program Update
We are pleased to announce a new partnership with UW Bothell that will be starting on our campus in Winter of 2016, called the First Year Entry RN-to-BSN Degree Program. The program's purpose is to promote the graduation of more RNs who are well on their way to obtaining a BSN. Hospitals have an increasing mandate to hire nurses who already have BSN degrees or who have concrete plans to get into a BSN program. Currently, UW Bothell teaches their BSN program on the EvCC campus for up to 90 students per year .
This new program will further the EvCC - UW Bothell partnership by admitting freshmen into a nursing program in which students begin with nursing prerequisites on the UW Bothell campus, transfer to EvCC for the pre-licensure Nursing portion, and then return to UW Bothell for their final year to earn the BSN degree. High School and Running Start students who are interested in the program should contact a UW Bothell admissions adviser and attend a FYE information session. Learn more by visiting the UWB BSN program overview website. A new cohort of thirty students will start at UWB every Autumn and then come to EvCC five quarters later each Winter quarter to begin their Nursing coursework. Thirty spots from our Winter admission cycle will be reserved for students participating in this program.
