Flathead Valley Community College is accepting applications for entry into the spring 2013 Associate of Science Nursing (ASN) program. The deadline for application submissions is October 26 at 4 p.m.
FVCC’s two-semester ASN program is intended for individuals already licensed as a Practical Nurse who want to pursue their education as a Registered Nurse. Admission criteria includes: completion of pre-requisite courses, a valid Montana Practical Nurse License, completion of a three credit LPN to RN transition course, and completion of an FVCC ASN application packet. Final acceptance requires an interview with FVCC nursing staff and faculty, passing a background check, testing negative for active tuberculosis, and proof of current personal health insurance. The college will admit ten students into the ASN program this spring semester.
FVCC follows the state model nursing curriculum for two-year colleges approved by the Montana Board of Regents and the Montana Board of Nursing. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the national Registered Nurse licensing exam (NCLEX-RN).
New students are required to complete the FVCC Application for Admission and follow the steps for enrolling, including submitting official transcripts if transfer of credits is to be considered.
Application packets containing information necessary to complete the ASN application process are available online at http://www.fvcc.edu/registerednursing.html.
