Admission Criteria:

Yuba College Nursing utilizes the California Community College Chancellor's Office Admission Formula to evaluate all LVN to ADN Career Ladder applicants.

This formula is calculated based upon a combination of the following factors:

         1.     Cumulative college GPA

         2.     English 1A (or equivalent) course GPA (≥2.50 required)

3.     Core Science (Anatomy, Physiology, & Microbiology)

        GPA (cumulative ≥2.50 required), and

4.     Total number of repeats (W, D, or F grades) in core

        science courses (lowers the admission score)

This calculation results in a probability percentage. The higher the percentage, the more likely the student is to complete the program successfully.
