Associate Degree Nursing Application
ADN Program


Step 1: Attend an Information Meeting

Students interested in enrolling in the Associate Degree in Nursing program should attend one of the information meetings which are held during the Fall and Spring semesters. At these meetings we go over the requirements for entering the program and answer your questions.

Step 2: Submit the Nursing Application

Complete the Associate Degree Nursing Program Application. Overall and Life Science GPAs of 2.5 are required in order to qualify for entrance into the Nursing Program.

Applications will be accepted from March 2-5, 2020 and from August 3-6, 2020.  Counselors will be available in Building C to meet with students as needed during the application periods.

Step 3: Take the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS)

Long Beach City College adheres to the guidelines provided by the California Community College Chancellors Office with regards to the TEAS test and remediation policy. After acceptance into the nursing program, students must pass the TEAS test with a 62% or higher on their first attempt. If students do not pass on their first attempt, they will be referred to the Learning and Academic Resource Center to be assigned a remediation plan.

Step 4: Complete a Background Check

Students are required to complete a background check. Clinical facilities reserve the right to refuse placement based on previous convictions on background checks. Ability to obtain licensure may also be affected by a record of convictions.
