UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Associate Degree Registered Nursing
Attending a Nursing Information Session is where students will get the most up-to-date information on getting started for the program, admission requirements, and the application process. Students can also meet one-on-one with Program Counselor, Stella Orfanos-Woo, for assistance. She is located in the Counseling Office, Building 100. The RN Information Sheet lists all requirements to prepare for the IVC RN Program, what is needed to apply, and how students are selected; the Multi-Criteria Grid outlines the point value for the admission criteria, and the TEAS website details the requirements for taking the pre-entrance test. Students are advised to use the Eligibility Worksheet and the GPA Calculator to monitor their courses, GPA, and points.
If selected, students must obtain clinical clearance before starting nursing classes. Clearances include: current CPR card for healthcare providers from the American Heart Association; current physical examination, current TB/PPD skin test, and current vaccinations (influenza [flu shot], 2-step MMR [Measles, Mumps Rubella], Hepatitis B, Tdap, and Varicella). Students will have the option of subscribing to an online system called COMPLIO to track and maintain their documentation online http://www.sdnahcbackground.com/. Hard copies of all clearances will be required for submission to the Nursing Office.
NURS 080 is a 5-week, 1.5 unit introduction course that prepares the nursing student for the program. It is offered 2 days a week, 4 hours a day, during Summer and Winter sessions. This course is only open to students who have confirmed their admission in the Nursing Program. The course syllabus is available on the IVC Syllabi Site. The Nursing Learning Center (NLC) is open to students enrolled in the program – students register for one (1) unit of Independent Studies at their course level – NURS 081, 082, 083, and 084.
The Associate of Science degree in Registered Nursing is outlined in the IVC catalog. The websites below outline the licensure exam for RN, the RN to BSN Program at SDSU, and obtaining the nurse assistance certification while in the Nursing Program.
