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 and the fee for it will replace the file establishment fee associated with the part-one application, which will no longer be used beginning with Winter quarter of 2015. Only one application will be used and turned in when a student is ready to apply to the program. 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.

This is a permission required class and its prerequisite is turning in official unopened copies of transcripts showing program prerequisites to the Health Professions Service Center in Liberty Hall, room 251. 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. While enrolled in the class, students will request an official credit evaluation of these transcripts, which can take about 8 weeks. This class is mandatory for anyone wishing admittance into Everett's Nursing Program, and if not finished before the deadline date they wish to compete for, will block a student from being 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.

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.
