Graduates of the ADN Program are eligible to apply for licensure by examination as registered nurses.
Notice to Students Regarding Licensing
Effective September 1, 2017, HB 1508 amends the Texas Occupations Code Section 53 that requires education providers to notify potential or enrolled students that a criminal history may make them ineligible for an occupational license upon program completion. The following website provides links to information about the licensing process and requirements: https://www.bon.texas.gov/licensure_eligibility.asp.
Should you wish to request a review of the impact of criminal history on your potential Registered Nurse License prior to or during your quest for a degree, you can visit this link and request a “Criminal History Evaluation”: https://www.bon.texas.gov/licensure_endorsement.asp.
This information is being provided to all persons who apply or enroll in the program, with notice of the requirements as described above, regardless of whether or not the person has been convicted of a criminal offense. Additionally, HB 1508 authorizes licensing agencies to require reimbursements when a student fails to receive the required notice.
Summer admission - Application deadline has been extended and must be submitted by 5 p.m. on April 15.
Health Insurance is required.
Required Nursing Student Portal - Clinical Documentation Verification Forms can be found on the Nursing Student Resources link as follows: https://www.com.edu/nursing/nursing-student-resources These forms will be required to be uploaded once the student has access to the Nursing Student Portal. All documentation must be PDF scanned files from a flatbed scanner. Do not take a photo of the immunization to upload it. Scanner apps from mobile devices are not acceptable.
