ADN Program

The Miracosta college Registered Nursing program prepares students with patient care in a range of healthcare settings.

The program emphasizes nursing theory and clinical practice for direct patient care. Students who successfully complete the Associate Degree in Nursing are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Upon successful performance on the examination, they are licensed as registered nurses (RNs).

Admissions procedures:

  • High school diploma or GED equivalency certificate
  • Complete pre-requisite college level courses with a GPA of 2.5 or above  
  • Submission of mandatory health record information as per the institutions requirements (including immunization records)

A point system using multi-criteria developed by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office is used to accept students into the RN program. 90 percent of student admission is based on the point system, and 10 percent of admitted students will come from the established wait list.

Students accepted into the RN program must take the Test of Academic Skills (TEAS) and receive a composite score of 62 percent in order to begin the program. Students who do not receive at least a 62 percent will be counseled and have a remediation plan designed. They will have one year to complete the remediation plan before retesting for admittance. This program has been approved by the Board of Registered Nursing
