    Modesto Junior College is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and has a full accreditation status. The nursing program uses the California Community College Chancellor’s Model for selection of program applicants. Applicants must achieve a Success Index score of 75 or higher to be qualified. Randomized selection will be used to select students from the pool of applicants with scores of 75 and above. The point system will be calculated on the basis of College GPA (English and Biology GPA).

    Applications for admittance are accepted once a year between the 1st and the 31st of May and students are selected from this pool for admission in the fall and spring semesters. Applications are available from the Allied Health office and website during the application period only and only applications received before the deadline will be processed.

    Conditionally accepted applicants will receive information regarding health clearance and the criminal background check, CPR certification, drug screen, and the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). The health clearance and physical examination is designed to ensure that the applicant does not have any health conditions that are hazardous and includes documentation of required immunizations and a negative PPD skin test. The criminal background check is a requirement for clinical agencies for students undertaking clinical experience practice.

    Students enrolled in the ADN program are required to complete all coursework with a ‘C’ grade or more to go on with the course and graduate in order to qualify for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). The California Board of Registered Nursing protects the public by screening applicants for licensure in order to identify potentially unsafe practitioners.
