Application/Admission Process

 All ADN applicants are now evaluated based upon a combination of their academic and personal achievements using a detailed multi-criteria screening process.

If you are interested in enrolling in the Yuba College Nursing program, please continue to work on pre-requisite course completion and it is highly recommended to meet with a Yuba College Counselor to review your progress. To make an appointment with a Counselor call 530-634-7766. The merit-based application and admission process requires all pre-requisite coursework (including NURS 26 - Pharmacology and NURS 36 - Pathophysiology: Understanding Disease) to be completed. Applicants must submit their official TEAS score results with the Yuba College Nursing Department application.

Securing Priority Registration for Pharmacology and Pathophysiology

Due to the high demand for enrollment in NURS 26 (Pharmacology) and NURS 36 (Pathophysiology: Understanding Disease), the Department of Nursing highly recommends students enroll in another Yuba College course in the immediately preceding semester in order to obtain priority registration. Priority registration will significantly increase your chances of getting into these highly desired courses. 

The Department of Nursing also recommends two specific courses: NURS 20 - Introduction to Nursing and NURS 51 - Medical Terminology. NURS 20 is designed to give potential nursing students an overview of current nursing roles, responsibilities, and scope of practice as defined by the Board of Registered Nursing. NURS 51 provides a foundation for the language of medicine, including prefixes, roots, suffixes, and correct pronunciation. These courses can help to facilitate your success in the program and will provide you with priority registration privileges. Please review the Class Schedule for a current list of course offerings.

Current CPR & TB Requirement

Students will not be allowed to start a nursing course without a current CPR and TB clearance in their file. Any student who has not received a recent TB test, or has gone more than 11 months between TB tests, will be required to complete a two-step tuberculin skin test. Please review the program's Health Screening Requirements for more information regarding this requirement.
