Flathead Valley Community College is accepting applications for entry into the spring 2014 Associate of Science Nursing (ASN) Registered Nurse (RN) program.   The deadline for application submissions is October 25 at 4 p.m.

FVCC’s two-semester ASN program follows the state model nursing curriculum for two-year colleges approved by the Montana Board of Regents and the Montana Board of Nursing.  It is intended for individuals, who are already licensed as a Practical Nurse, or those who have completed a State Board of Nursing approved practical nurse program and who are eligible to take the national licensing exam for Practical Nurses.  Graduates of the ASN-RN program will be eligible to take the national Registered Nurse licensing exam (NCLEX-RN).

Submission criteria includes:  completion of all pre-requisite courses, a valid Montana Practical Nurse License or an official transcript showing completion of an approved practical nurse program, and completion of the current 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.

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.

Information and Application packets containing information necessary to complete the ASN application process are available online at   Completed applications may be dropped off at the college’s Admissions Office or mailed to:  FVCC Admissions Office, 777 Grandview Drive, Kalispell, MT 59901.
