The Nursing Admissions Committee at Clinton Community College welcomes applications from individuals who meet all academic and health requirements, possess the intellectual, emotional and ethical capabilities to undertake the curriculum, and achieve the competency level required for safe, effective nursing practice.
The admissions process is very competitive due to the high number of applicants. Candidates are urged to review the general college and specific nursing admission requirements, which are cited in the college catalog. Each applicant must successfully complete all pre-requisite courses with a "C" grade or higher, before applying for entry into the nursing program. Students who have attended another nursing school must submit a letter from the prior school concerning their ability to return.
Nursing applications are available and must be submitted between October 1 and February 1 each year for the class beginning the following fall term. Nursing candidates must complete the nursing application in addition to the standard Clinton application for admission. If you have previously applied to Clinton, it is not necessary to re-apply using the standard application. If you have previously attended Clinton please complete the College Re-Admission Interest Form.
