ADN Program

The Los Angeles Southwest College Registered Nursing Program is a program that prepares students for an Associate of Science Degree with a major in Nursing.

Students who successfully complete the two year program are prepared to function in entry level nursing and take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-RN) leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

Application Processes:

  • Contact the Nursing Office to attend a Nursing Applicant Information Session, where applicant will receive admission information including Nursing pre-requisite form, GPA verification form and TEAS. (Applications are only available at these sessions)
  • Official Sealed transcripts (high school or GED equivalency and from all colleges and universities were pre-requisite college level coursework were preformed)
  • Submit completed application and supporting materials between the 15th of January to the 15 of March and between the 15th July and 15th September.

Applications that are not presented with a complete set of supporting documentation will not be considered for the academic pool.

The most qualified candidates are admitted at the start of the semester following the application deadline. In the case of more qualified applicants than the number of seats allocated for the semester the selection process is conducted by a lottery purpose.

Applicants accepted into the program are expected to attend a mandatory all day Nursing Orientation meeting. A student who does not attend the orientation will forfeit his/her position which will be given to an alternate candidate. There is also a highly recommended six week Orientation to Nursing Class.

Students need to complete all courses in the Nursing program with a ‘C’ grade or higher to advance in the program and earn the Associate of Science Degree.
