Applicant Update:The application cycle for the class entering Fall 2017 is now closed. Phase 2 letters were mailed on April 19th. Please contact the nursing office if you have not received your response by April 25th.
The Phase 2 score is the sum of points added from ATI TEAS results to the Phase 1 score. There were 51 qualified applications after Phase 2. Using the multi-criterion selection scoring tool, the top 40% (competitive) score for the applicant pool was 75 points (out of a possible 100).
There were 25 applications that scored at 75 points or higher, and 4 applications that scored at 70 points, for a total of 29 applications. To fill the class with 32 seats, the 65 point score group and higher was the selection group. However, there were 3 seats left to fill, and 11 applications that scored 65 points. The individuals who scored 65 points and were also alternates last year were given priority. Alternate numbers follow in order of score groups with random assignment for ties, and priority given within that score group if there was a previous application.
Notice: The selection process for the generic ADN program is now based on a Multi-Criteria Screening Process as defined in AB 1559 (Berryhill) and California Education Code Section 78261. This law provides for a community college registered nursing program that determines the number of applicants to the program exceeds its capacity, to admit students using a multi-criteria screening process. For your information, the competitive multi-criterion score for Phase 1 for the immediate past applicant pool was 45 points, and for Phase 2 was 75 points. The competitive score is based on the top 40% of applicant scores, and so may vary from year to year.
