Entrance Requirements

Start dates for the Practical Nursing (PN) and Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Completion Programs are based on the date that a student applies for admission, achieves the designated admission criteria, and space availability. Prior to, or after completing the PN Program, it is the student’s responsibility to notify the Admissions Office of his or her desire to advance to the ADN Completion Program. Immediate progression into the ADN second year nursing program cannot be guaranteed. Admission requirements for nursing students at the Cherokee and Denison campus are the same as those for the Sioux City WITCC Campus. The Hybrid section has additional requirements.
