The Mt. San Antonio College Nursing Program is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing. The program is a two-year program designed to prepare students to give direct nursing care to clients in various practice settings.
The program consists of course work in nursing, science, general education and clinical nursing practice at local hospitals and health agencies.
Graduates of the program receive an Associate in Science Degree in Nursing and are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse.
Final Selection of students for each admitting period will be determined by random selection from a pool of qualified candidates.
Qualified candidates will be expected to submit to a criminal background check and drug screening must be completed prior to any patient contact. A physical examination, including specific immunizations is required of all candidates prior to the beginning of nursing classes.
The program also requires Current Level C-Provider CPR certification. The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) protects the consumer by screening applicants for licensure in order to identify potentially unsafe practitioners.
