ADN Application Procedure
Steps to Apply
If not already then submit an application to MSJC.
A Nursing and Allied Health Transcript Evaluation is a verification of completed prerequisite courses. This MUST be completed prior to application. You must meet with a Counselor in order for them to sign off the appropriate form. Prerequisites must be completed or in the final semester of completion before submitting a Nursing and Allied Health Evaluation Request. Getting this signed off DOES NOT guarantee admission into the program.
NOTE: All Official Transcripts from other colleges attended must be submitted or already on file before your evaluation can be completed! (Electronic transcripts must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org) All foreign transcripts must be evaluated by an accredited U.S. company. A list of approved companies for foreign transcript evaluations can be found at naces.org. You will receive your completed prerequisite evaluation with a letter stating your program application eligibility via your Self Service account.
All prospective applicants are required to meet with a counselor to have a Nursing and Allied Health Evaluation Request signed off. Student will then submit it to Enrollment Services electronically through the Student Support Hub prior to submitting an application to the ADN program or LVN-RN program.
Once the evaluation is completed, students will receive an eligibility email with a link to “Program Notes” which will provide a written report of your transcript evaluation and application eligibility. Emails will be sent to MSJC student email for students who are currently enrolled and to personal email for students not currently enrolled. Students should review this email carefully, as it will outline the documents submitted, the remaining documents required in order to meet the prerequisite requirements to apply to the ADN program or LVN-RN program, as well as the next steps the student needs to complete in order to apply to the program.
Submit an ADN (RN) Nursing Application and all supporting documentation to the NAHU office between February 1 - February 15 for fall admissions and between September 1 - September 15 for spring admissions in to the ADN (RN) Nursing Program.

The department will be holding workshops to answer any questions that you may have regarding the RN and LVN-RN application.
Prospective nursing students must pass a Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) prior to program admission. This test assesses basic skills in Math, English, Reading, and Science.
Applicants are required to submit the first passing TEAS VI and/or VII score, therefore
preparation for this assessment is essential. Study resources can be found on the ATI website.
An applicant must achieve a passing composite score of 62% or above in order to be eligible for admission.
The ATI TEAS VI and/or VII test can only be taken twice (total) in order to achieve a passing score. We no longer accept TEAS V results.
