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 Part-time Evening-Weekend (PTEW) program, students must apply online to Clark State Community 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.
Effective Fall 2016, the nursing courses in the PTEW program will only be offered at the Greene Center campus in Beavercreek. Students need to travel outside of Greene County, generally to Clark County, for some clinical experiences.
Waiting lists are maintained for the College's 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. Students may only petition to have their name placed on one nursing program admission waiting list.
