FVCC Now Accepting Applications for Spring 2016 Registered Nursing Program

Flathead Valley Community College is accepting applications for the spring 2016 Associate of Science Nursing (ASN) program. The deadline for application submissions is September 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 for those who have completed a State Board of Nursing approved practical nurse program who are eligible to take the national licensing exam for Practical Nurses. Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the national Registered Nurse licensing exam (NCLEX-RN).

 

Admission criteria includes:  completion of 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, providing proof of required immunizations, and proof of current personal health insurance.  The college will admit 16 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 to the college, including submitting official transcripts if transfer of credits is to be considered.  Visit www.fvcc.edu/apply for more information on the college’s admission process.

 

Additional information and ASN program application packets are available online at www.fvcc.edu/rn. Completed applications may be dropped off at the college’s Admissions Office or mailed to: FVCC Admissions Office, 777 Grandview Drive, Kalispell, MT 59901.
