If you want to enter the Practical Nursing program, the following steps can set you on your way toward your career path.

Because this is a selective admission program, please pay particular attention to the transcript and eligibility requirements. If you have applied before and were not selected, you must reapply.

Application Period

The Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 Practical Nursing application period opens in December and closes March 15, 2019.

New JCCC Students:

Prospective PN students who have not attended JCCC before (or if it has been more than two years since you last attended) must complete a JCCC application for admission. The application is the first step in the enrollment process; select Non-Degree Seeking or Liberal Arts for your major and the Spring 2019 term.

After you receive your JCCC ID number, follow the steps below. It may take ten business days for your application to be processed; please email Teresa Leland if you apply to the program within 10 days of the posted deadline.

Current JCCC Students:

  1. Complete the Fall 2019 Full-time PN or Summer 2019 Part-time application. Arrange for official transcripts (all previous colleges) to be sent directly to JCCC. It is not necessary to request JCCC transcripts or transcripts already on file at JCCC. Your college transcripts must demonstrate a prerequisite GPA of 2.0 or higher to be eligible for admission to the program. All documents must be submitted prior to the application deadline (March 15) for students to be considered eligible for application to the program.
  2. Submit the Disclosure and Consent for Background Check form.
  3. Demonstrate Reading Readiness
  4. Email your current KS CNA verification to Teresa Leland or drop it off at the Student Center room 319.
