Students are encouraged to begin the application process early to allow adequate time to complete the Student Readiness Checklist before the application due date (see page 2 of this document).
Potential applicants should read the information contained in the Student Readiness Checklist carefully and complete the checklist on the second page of the document before meeting with the Director of Nursing to complete and sign the Formal Application. Listed below are the steps required for application to the Practical Nursing program at Southeastern Community College. The steps are provided as a guideline and, in all cases, the applicant should work closely with his/her assigned nursing advisor during the application process.
*The new 2023 Student Readiness Checklist will be available soon.
Once all requirements for application have been met, the applicant must meet with the Director of Nursing to complete and sign the formal application. (Students must apply each year, and may apply for admission to only one program at a time). Current admission, readmission, and continuation in the program guidelines are outlined in the Southeastern Community College Catalog.
Applicants are chosen for admission to the nursing program using a points system that is based on completion of a student readiness checklist, a comparison of SCC GPA, success in previously completed core courses, and a review of all documents by the nursing admissions committee. Acceptance into the PN program will be announced as soon as applications are received and processed. Admission to the nursing program is competitive; meeting the requirements to complete the formal application does not guarantee admission to the program. The number of applicants chosen will be determined by the nursing admissions committee based on the space and resources available.
