The Associate Degree Nursing training program readies graduates to function as registered nurses (RNs) in nursing homes, hospitals, and other health-care agencies.
Registered nurses promote health for patients through evaluation of body systems, application of treatment modalities, implementation of the nursing process, patient education, and rehabilitation care.
Upon successful completion of the training program, the graduate is qualified to take the NCLEX exam for licensure as a registered nurse (RN). The nursing training program is certified by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN).

- In addition to completing BIO 1230 and BIO1235, a student must pass the TEAS V
test with at least a proficient level before beginning the application process for the nursing program. Before registering for the TEAS V test, the student must see an academic advisor to calculate the GPA from the required general education courses for the nursing program.
- The TEAS V test can be taken only twice and each time the test is taken a fee must be paid. The test may be taken at Terra State or at another college. After the test is taken, the student must provide proof of Proficiency and all Terra deadlines apply.
- If a student is planning to apply for a fall semester start, the Teas V test must be completed no later than the first Friday of March.
- If a student is planning to apply for a spring start, the Teas V must be completed no later than the first Friday of October.
- Due to limited seating capacity in the Testing Center, it is recommended the student not wait until the last minute to schedule the test.
- The student must provide a printed copy of their TEAS V test result to their Academic Advisor.
- After completing Anatomy and Physiology I (BIO 1230) and Anatomy and Physiology I Lab (BIO 1235) and scoring at the Proficient level on the TEAS V test, a
student must schedule an appointment with their Academic Advisor. The Academic
Advisor will calculate the program course GPA, will sign the TEAS V test and
complete the nursing rubric. The student may then apply to the nursing program.
The student must bring all documents to the Allied Health, Nursing, Physical and Social Sciences Division office located in D219 to obtain an application. Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to apply to the nursing program if all documents are not signed and presented to the division office. The student will then be placed on the candidate list; however, students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale in courses that apply to the nursing program. Additionally, the student must receive a grade of “C” or better in all courses that apply to the nursing program.
