Medical Relief Trip to the Dominican Republic

A group of 20 nursing students and 3 instructors will be making their annual medical relief trip to the Dominican Republic in December. If you would like to make a donation of any of the items on this list  please use either the barrel outside of Candace Whedon's office at LBH 361 or the one in Parks Student Union across the hall from The Paperclip. If you would like to make a monetary donation to help us buy prescription medications, such as antibiotics or if you would like more information, please contact Candace Whedon or 425-388-9462.

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.

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.

Nurse with patient in bed As the second oldest associate degree program in Washington state, EvCC's nursing program has been preparing students to be registered nurses since 1950. Graduates of our accredited program receive an Associates in Arts and Sciences in Nursing degree. Following the national movement for nurses to seek more education, most graduates continue their studies and earn BSN or higher nursing degrees.

The Nursing Curriculum includes a strong foundation in communication, biological and social sciences, Nursing Studentgeneral education and nursing courses. Students integrate theory and practice throughout the Nursing Program. Application occurs in campus laboratories, simulation laboratories, classroom settings, acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community health care settings.

The Profession of Nursing requires practice that is based on nursing as an art and a science. Thus your nursing education at Everett Community College involves a high level of both academic studies and learned professional behaviors. Compassion, caring, critical thinking, clinical judgment making, collaboration, communication, cognitive ability, and professional and ethic conduct are requisite to a successful nursing education and career. See 'Essential Qualifications'.

The Nursing Faculty are committed to the success of Everett’s Nursing Students. We work diligently to view each student as an individual who is capable to attaining the high standards of nursing. We strive to assist students to attain their goals, and we endeavor to model the personal and professional characteristics which we seek to develop in our students.
