Nursing Program Admissions Procedure
Fall Quarter: June 1 - July 5
Winter Quarter: August 1 - September 5
Spring Quarter: December 1 - January 5
The EvCC Nursing Program Application is submitted online. Please review the information on this page, as well as the Application Checklist and Application Guidelines to confirm that you are ready to proceed. Applications may only be completed and submitted during the cycle dates listed above.
The Nursing Pre-Application class does not run during the Winter Quarter, and closes for enrollment as all other EvCC courses do the 8th week of the quarter, 6th of the Summer Quarter. For exact dates check EvCC's Important Dates calendar. Do not delay in registering for the course. Permission codes for the class must be obtained at the Health Professions Service Center, LBH 251. They are not given out over the phone or in emails.
Pre Admission eXam (PAX)
Students may take the test only once per application period, and their test score must reach at least the 58% percentile on the conversion chart to be eligible for the program. Students who register for more than one testing date during an application cycle will not be admitted for a second attempt during that cycle. Everett's Nursing Program will only accept PAX test scores from tests that were administered at EvCC. Test results from an exam taken at any location other than EvCC will not be considered by the Admissions Committee. For questions, please contact the HPSC. If a student needs testing accommodations, they should contact the Center for Disability Services at 425-388-9272. The Nursing Admissions Committee is not made aware of any testing accommodations that students are given by the CDC, and these accommodations are not a factor in the Committee's consideration of a student's application.

New testing dates will be posted the first week of spring, summer, and fall quarters. Testing dates will not be offered during the Winter Quarter. There is a limited amount of spots made available, so do not delay in signing up for your date. If you log on to the NLN site and one of the tests listed below does not display, this means that testing date is full. The doors will be locked and no one will be allowed into the testing room after 10:15, so come early parking may be difficult.
A new testing date on June 8, 2017 at 10 a.m. has been added to the fall application cycle. This date will be made available for registration on NLN's website starting May 9, 2017 at 9 a.m.
If this date also fills up, a wait list will be started by the Health Professions Service Center. Please contact them if you wish to be added to the list. NOTE: This is not a guarantee of a testing date.

Immunization and Background Requirements
All applicants must create an immunization account and complete a background check through our online system with American DataBank (ADB). The immunization section is called Complio. Your immunization account is good for one year, for a cost of $15. 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 from the date of completion. If it expires on or before the application cycle deadline, it must be renewed, or it will keep a student's application from being considered for that application period.
Your application must be completely compliant with the standards on the clinical passport at the time of submission 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.
Student Immunization Discount Form
This system gives students a more diversified way to earn admittance into the program. While your test scores are still a factor, you now have other opportunities to earn points, from prerequisite GPA totals, work experience or licensure in the healthcare industry, and other educational degrees earned above an Associate's Degree.
Please note that this form is not the same as the criminal background check. It must be completed by all applicants and uploaded as part of their application.
Please note that we will not accept an Employment Verification Form if the corresponding licensure has not been submitted as well.
Once a student has been accepted into the Nursing Program they may qualify for the Opportunity Grant which helps low-income adults train for high-demand careeres.
