TEAS Test Registration

On August 31, 2016 an updated ATI TEAS was released. Students taking the exam on or after August 31 will need to purchase the sixth edition of the TEAS study manual.

Beginning Spring 2018, TEAS 5 scores will not be accepted, and students will have to take the new ATI TEAS test.

The Nursing Department includes two board-approved programs: Associates Degree – Nursing (ADN) and Vocational Nursing (VN). The ADN program is four semesters in length and the VN program is three semesters. Each program has pre-requisite courses, plus nursing theory with concurrent clinical practice. Graduates of both programs are eligible to sit for the licensure examination and are prepared for employment. A career mobility LVN to RN track is also available that culminates in achieving the Associate Degree.

Students with a diagnosed documented disability from a Disability Resource Center Learning Specialist need to submit accommodation paperwork to the SCC Nursing Program Director. Students with questions or concerns are encouraged to call (916) 558-2271 and schedule an appointment with the Program Director. MORE >>
