Admission Procedures- Requirements to apply to the Nursing Program

Important: Any prior conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may influence eligibility for licensure as a Registered Nurse.  A flagged background check or drug screen may also prohibit entrance and/or participation in the nursing program.  Applicants with prior convictions are required to contact the Director of Nursing for confidential advisement and planning prior to applying to the program and visit the California Board of Registered Nursing website for general information.

Applications must be complete and submitted in person unless you live out of State or outside of San Diego County.  No late or incomplete applications will be accepted for consideration.  If the application packet is incomplete, the Nursing Program will not be able to return to sender.  Due to the amount of applications received, we are unable to review applications at time of submission.  The Nursing Program office will go over individual immunizations/tests with applicants to ensure all requirements are met.  Applicants wishing to have specific questions answered relating to their application prior to applying may visit the Nursing Program office between 8:30am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Update July 11, 2012- Beginning with the application period for fall 2013, all applicants will be required to provide proof of all immunizations and/or tests with their application packets.  A complete list of immunizations required is included on the application.  If you are interested in applying to the program in the near future, you are strongly encouraged to begin the series of immunizations now.  Some series can take up to 8 months to complete.

Official transcripts of science prerequisites and Nursing major requirements must accompany your Nursing Program application packet to be complete.  Do not send transcripts separately to the Nursing Office to be held.  Grossmont Cuyamaca Community College transcripts are not required; the program office can access those for you.

Foreign Transcripts- Proof of completion of High School and/or college coursework must be evaluated by the International Education Research Foundation (IERF).  This credentialing service evaluates transcripts for equivalency to U.S. coursework.  If a foreign degree was earned, the evaluation must state its equivalency to a U.S. degree.  If you are submitting your college transcripts to IERF, you must get a detailed report, if submitting High School transcripts to IERF, you only need a general report.

Official transcripts of all previous college coursework must be sent to Admissions and Records immediately upon accepting an invitation into the Nursing Program.

When you are selected for a class, the Nursing Program will notify you at the most recent email address you have submitted. The nursing program cannot take any email addresses from Yahoo or Hotmail when applying or when making any changes after applying.  Any changes in your contact information must be submitted in writing to the program office at You will receive a reply from the nursing office acknowledging receipt. All emails sent to students on the waitlist and those currently in the program are sent with a delivery and read receipt.  If you chose not to check the read receipt when opening the email, the program is not responsible if the student states that they did not receive the email.    Verbal changes are not accepted.
