Following are the minimum requirements for ADN-RN Nursing Program. Minimum admission standards include:
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and meet all admission requirements of the College.
Prior to submitting the application for admission, students must complete all prerequisite courses and the Health Education Systems, Inc. Admission Assessment (HESI A2 ).
Grade Point Average (GPA for Nursing ). Students must earn a grade of C or better in each prerequisite course and have an overall minimum prerequisite GPA of 2.5. Points are earned by multiplying the GPA x 10. For example, a student earning a 3.2 GPA would earn 32 points towards admission (e.g., 3.2 x 10=32). The maximum number of points granted for GPA is 40.
HESI A2. A minimum score of 75% on each subtest of the HESI A2 is required to be considered for admission. The test scores are translated into points. For example, a score of 81% provides 81 points toward admission. Only scores on the following subtests are considered for admission: reading, vocabulary, grammar, math.
Students may earn additional points by achieving certain subtest scores. The score ranges required to earn additional points for a subtest are as follows:
- 0-89.99% = 3 additional points
- 0-100% = 5 additional points
A total of 20 additional points toward admission may be earned in this manner.
The total number of possible points = 120
The points earned from the HESI A2 and GPA are added together, and this total determines who is offered admission. The total maximum points possible = 160.
If two or more students have an equal number of points, residents of TCC’s service district, veterans and students who have completed all the corequisite non-nursing courses will receive first consideration. Corequisites include one General Education Humanities State Core course, plus MCB2004 General Microbiology and MCB2004L Microbiology Laboratory .
The program accepts students for each Fall and each Spring semester. This is a limited-access program with a limited number of seats per class; applicants are accepted based on the admission requirements point system described above. There is no waiting list for this program.
Applicants must submit a TCC admission application (www.tcc.fl.edu/apply ) and a separate healthcare program application by the published application deadline. Applicants may access the healthcare application through their TCC Passport account.
