Note Regarding Open Enrollment
The student is expected to provide his/her own transportation to off-site clinical facilities that at times can be 50 or more miles away. In addition to paying for tuition and books, the student is required to purchase a uniform, pin, white shoes, watch, bandage scissors, and liability and health insurance. In order to attend clinical rotations, students must also successfully pass both a criminal and a Washington State Department of Social and Health Services background check. For additional information about a required nursing orientation and the application procedure, contact the Nursing Advisor, at ext. 2641.
Upon successful completion of the required credits, the student will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The graduate will be eligible to take the licensing examination and upon passing, practice as a Registered Nurse (RN). Application for RN licensure asks for information regarding legal convictions, and drug/alcohol and addiction conditions that may inhibit nursing practice. For additional questions on this issue, contact the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission. The program is fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation and Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission and the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
