Effective fall 2013, entrance to the generic ADN program:

Students will be admitted to the program based on their scholastic eligibility and placement on a nursing assessment test as per SB 1309. If the program is receiving Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funding, in accordance with the Jobs for Veterans Act (JVA), priority will be given to applicants with proof of military, naval, or air service and discharge under conditions other than dishonorable; students must work with Admissions and Records to determine elgibility. An eligible spouse or widow(er) will also be extended this priority status.    

SCHOLASTIC ELIGIBILITY: Scholastic eligibility is determined through a statewide approved formula (California Community College Chancellors Office Pre-requisite Validation) which calculates the student’s probability of successfully completing the ADN program. The formula uses the following criteria:

1.   Core Biology GPA – all Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology courses taken at the college level.

2.   Core Biology repetitions – the number of times a student has repeated a Core Biology course including withdrawals.

3.  English GPA – all credit English course grades regardless of the level of the course.

4. Overall GPA– the college GPA as it appears on college transcripts.

5.  Students must have a minimum score of 75% designating the probability of successfully completing the ADN program, to be eligible for admission.
