ADN Program

The Chippewa Valley Technical College Nursing program allows students who complete the first year of the program to sit for the licensure exam for Practical Nursing. The program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

The full time option of the program is open to admission in August and in January. The part time study option is only offered for August enrollment.

Students enrolled in the program are eligible to sit for the national licensure exam at the end of their first year to be licensed as a practical nurse and at the end of their second year of enrollment for licensure as a Registered Nurse.  

Initial Admission Requirements:

  1. Official high school diploma or GED equivalency certificate
  2. Official transcript for all college level coursework
  3. COMPASS pre-admission assessment
  4. Criminal Background Check

The program also requires documented proof of completion of CNA training and current CPR certification for healthcare providers from the American Heart Association or professional rescuer certificate from the American Red Cross.

Students are encouraged to complete general education requirements for the ADN before enrolling for the nursing core courses.

Applicants who are in the process of fulfilling general requirements will be placed on a waiting list from the time that application documents are received.

Applicants wishing to transfer credits for college level coursework can submit official documents for transcript evaluation to evaluate the credits earned.
