Applying for admission into the Nursing Program is a separate procedure from the application process for the College. First, apply to the College and get your Student ID Number and then begin your application to the Nursing Program.
There are several new steps to the Nursing application process:
Online immunization records and background check account. All applicants must create an immunization account and complete a background check through our new online system with American DataBank (ADB). The immunization section is called Complio. Your immunization account is good for one year, with a cost of $35. You will need to select the "Pre-admission ADN Applicant" option when creating both your immunization and National Background accounts. The background check starts at $55 and can go up if you have lived in several counties or states. The background check portion of the account is good for six months. If it expires before the deadline, it must be renewed, or it will keep you from being considered for the program for that application period.
Your application must be completely compliant with the standards on the Clinical Passport by the deadline date in order for you to be considered for the Nursing Program for that quarter. Please read about the Hepatitis B immunizations and testing as this process can take up to eight months to complete. Also review the Tuberculosis requirements before visiting your healthcare provider for this test.
Another new step in the process is the new "Nursing Pre-Appliction" class. A mandatory non-credit class that must be taken the quarter before a student wishes to compete for the program. Please click the link to find out more about the class.
- When you have decided on which quarter you want to compete for, turn in your application and start your immunization and background check accounts about 30 days before the deadline for that quarter. Turn in your application to the Health Profession Service Center in Liberty Hall room 251. If the deadline date falls on a non-school date (i.e. holiday, weekend, etc.) the deadline is moved to the Friday before the date at 3 p.m. During Summer quarter, EvCC is closed on Fridays. If the deadline falls on a Friday during the summer, the deadline will be moved to the previous business day. Here are the deadlines for the different application periods:
Fall Quarter – July 5
Winter Quarter – September 5
Spring Quarter – January 5
All non-science courses are completed or student has indicated the manner and timing of the course completion on the application. All outstanding classes must be completed with at least a 2.0 (C) grade before starting the Nursing Program.
All science courses must be completed before the application deadline date with a cummulative GPA of 2.85 or above.
Turn in all official transcripts from other colleges to the Health Professions Service Center (HPSC) in Liberty Hall room 251. If all classes were completed at EvCC, there is no need to turn in transcripts to the HPSC.
New Testing Procedure
Starting Spring Quarter 2015, students applying to the program are required to complete ATI TEAS testing before the deadline date they are applyiing for. The process of sending out letters inviting students to take the TEAS test at Everett Community College is discontinued. Going forward, dates and times that students may sign up to take the test at EvCC are listed here on the Nursing Admissions Testing Signup link.
Students will need to create an ATI account at www.ATItesting.com selecting Everett Community College as your institution. This must be completed prior to your testing date. Bring your login information to testing. Pay the EvCC Cashier (located in Parks Student Union, room 201) for the test and bring your receipt and U.S. Government issued photo identification with you.
If you have taken the test more than once within the last two years, we will only consider the test results from your second attempt. If you took or are planning to take the test at a location other than EvCC, submit an Official Results Report through ATI to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline date to be considered for that application period.
ATI TEAS test scores are reviewed and considered in the acceptance process for the program. All TEAS test sections must be passed at proficient levels or above. Then, those students with the highest overall TEAS scores will be accepted into the program first. The table below shows the benchmarks for proficient levels.

The Nursing Program is changing the entrance test from TEAS to PAX
The Nursing Program will begin using the PAX (Pre Admission eXam) for entrance into the Nursing Program for the Winter 2016 application period. The TEAS test will be discontinued after the Fall deadline of July 5, 2015. Please review the New PAX Test document to learn more about this upcoming change to the admisssions process.
A student must have met with a nursing advisor and completed all of the above requirements by the application deadline date to be considered for the Nursing Program. The Admissions Committee will review and verify these requirements during the selection process. Please note that nursing advisers will not make appointments for student advising. Check the "Drop in Advising" schedule for current dates and times advisers will be available durring the quarter.
