Thank you for your interest in the Associate Degree Registered Nursing Program at Imperial Valley College. The program has been in existence since 1971 and is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing. Admission to the RN Program is by application only with a selection process that includes defined multi-screening criteria. Students who are in good health, 18 years of age or older, and meet the admission criteria are eligible to apply. The student who completes the Registered Nursing (RN) Program, approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination and if successful will be able to provide nursing care to patients or clients in a variety of health care agencies as a registered nurse. The curriculum consists of general education support courses, nursing theory courses, and clinical experiences in local health care facilities and facilities outside of the county.
The program is designed to take 24 months (4 semesters) to complete and requires full-time attendance.
The TEAS (Test for Essential Academic Skills) (www.atitesting.com) entrance exam will be required. The TEAS should be taken when all prerequisites have been completed and tutoring has been obtained through the RN Program's Nursing Learning Center (NLC) located in Room 2158. The TEAS is offered twice a semester, before and during the application periods. For a tutorial appointment and/or to schedule the exam, contact the NLC at 1-760-355-6530 (new TEAS policy).
The program is open to transfer and LVN to RN students pending completion of requirements and space availability. LVN to RN students can apply for the AS degree or 30-Unit option. Students seeking the Associate Degree option must meet admission criteria and complete a NURS 204 Transition Course. California LVNs may also apply for the CA Board of Registered Nursing's 30-Unit Option but are not considered graduates of the College. Transfer students must complete a Transfer Form from their previous nursing program.
IVC does not maintain a wait list. Students are selected into the program based on a point system using the Admission Criteria grid. Students not selected must reapply. Applicants are notified by email of results 30 days after the deadline. Students enrolled in the IVC VN Program are not invited to apply
Effective January 01, 2012- Students enrolled or those who have accepted a seat into any other IVC nursing program, will be ineligible to apply to the Registered Nursing Program. Students wishing to apply to the Nursing Program must apply for an entry date which does not conflict with the completion of the program you are currently in.
