Chemeketa's Nursing Program provides a "career ladder" format that -
Two courses are required for application to Chemeketa's Nursing program
These courses must be completed by the end of winter term (the year of application) with a grade of C or better
Note: Chemistry is a prerequisite for BI231. Chemistry, CH110 or 104 or 121 or 221 or successful completion of chemistry proficiency exam are acceptable. A full sequence of chemistry is recommended for students planning to pursue a four-year degree.
Most students spend one or more years in pre-Nursing courses to prepare for applying to the Nursing program. In order to enhance their chance of admission, most students complete the majority of general education and science requirements prior to application.
Upon entry into the program, you will be required to pass a criminal background check conducted by a college approved vendor. If you do not pass the criminal background check, program registration will not be possible. If you are arrested during the time you're enrolled in the program, you must notify the Program Chair of the arrest. Your status in the program will be reviewed by the Program Chair and the Dean and a possible outcome of the review may be your inability to continue in the program. You may also be required to submit to a 10-panel drug screen urinalysis (UA) and obtain vaccinations. Additionally, two-year programs require you to repeat the processes at the start of the second year.
