New "Nursing Pre-Application" Class

Starting Winter quarter 2015, all students wishing to apply to Everett's Nursing Program must complete the new "Nursing Pre-Application" class. This is a non-credit class that should take you no more than a couple of hours and is a means by which to get your transcripts reviewed and make sure you have become familiar with the program and its application requirements.

This class is mandatory for anyone wishing admittance into Everett's Nursing Program. Students who have not finished the class before the deadline date they wish to compete for, will not be considered for that application period. This means that if you wish to apply for Fall quarter (deadline July 5) you would take the class Spring quarter. To apply for Winter (deadline September 5) take the class during the summer. If interested in Spring quarter (deadline January 5) the class must be completed Fall quarter.

Application to the Nursing Program previously had two parts, Part One and Part Two. Beginning with Winter quarter of 2015, there will be only one application and it will be turned in when a student is ready to apply to the program. The fee for the nursing Pre-Application Class will replace the File Establishment Fee associated with the former Part One Application. If you had previously turned in a Part One application and paid the filing fee, your cost for the class will be waived, but you must still take the class.

The Nursing Pre-Application class is a permission-required class and its prerequisite is met when you have turned in official unopened copies of all transcripts from other schools to the Health Professions Service Center (HPSC) in Liberty Hall, room 251. You will be given a permission code at this time. If all prerequisite classes were completed at EvCC, there is no need to turn in official transcripts, but a permission code is still needed to enroll in the class. You may get the code by coming by the HPSC office. While enrolled in the class, students will fill in a form to request an official credit evaluation of their transcripts, which can take about 8 weeks, and meet with an adviser if they have not previously done so.
 

New requirements for the Nursing Program application process

There is a new step to the admission process. All applicants must create an immunization account and complete a background check through our new online system. Your immunizations must be completely compliant with the standards set by the nursing consortium    by the deadline date in order for you to be considered for the nursing program for that quarter. If you are not compliant in all categories within the account, you will not be considered for that application period, and may apply for the next admission deadline. Please read about the TB requirements before visiting your healthcare provider for this immunization. When creating your immunization account you will select the "Pre-admission ADN Applicant" option. You should not create either account more than 30 days before the deadline date.

LPN Bridge Program and RN Refresher Course are discontinued

The Nursing Program will no longer be offering the LPN to RN advanced placement program. Any LPN wishing to join the program will need to compete as any other applicant, following the admission criteria guidelines. The RN Refresher Course was linked with the HECO Grant that ended June 2014. It will not be offered again in the future.
