Practical Nursing Certificate Petition
Petitioning is the process where students request entry into the clinical nursing courses of the program.
Prior to petitioning for acceptance into the Practical Nursing program, students must apply online to the College. Admission to the College does not guarantee acceptance into the Practical Nursing program. Students may petition to the Practical Nursing program only after they have met requirements in math, reading, writing and grade point average. Once these requirements are met, their name is placed on the program's admission waiting list.
Waiting lists are maintained for the College's Practical Nursing programs because the number of students that can be admitted into the clinical nursing courses each year is restricted due to limited availability of clinical sites. Detailed information about the program's petitioning requirements and the process follows. The length of the wait varies based on petition date and program location. Students may only petition to have their name placed on one nursing program list (Day or Evening)
