Submit a complete registration application.
All students must be at least eighteen (18) years of age on or before the first day of class.
Students must possess an official H.S transcript or have a General Education Development Certificate (official G.E.D.), or an official CGFNS evaluation.
All students must take an Entrance Examination: Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).
The four subtests are Math, Science, English and Reading designed to predict the academic readiness of applicants. The passing score is the attainment of 58.7% (or current standard) in each subject. (This level is known as the proficient level or national average cut score – students at this level may require additional preparation for some objectives assessed on TEAS but have great chances of success in the program). Inability to achieve the minimum proficiency level on the TEAS test will result in referral for remediation (appropriate resources will be provided). The candidate will be allowed to retest after a period of three (3) months from the original test date. If the candidate is unable to meet the minimum level after the second attempt, they will not be allowed to retest for a period of one (1) year.
Student must be able to legally study and work in the United States of America. Student must show proof of citizenship or legal residency.
Criminal History Background Check. In order to work in a hospital, nursing home and/or a home care agency, they may be subject to a criminal background check. A criminal record may prevent the student from working as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Minor traffic violations will not bar admission into the program. Any student who has committed any illegal offenses that are not disclosed upon admission may result in immediate termination from the program once discovered.
Registration submission does not guarantee admission. Due to limited availability, the admission process is highly competitive.
