NMC Nursing Program accepting applications for fall 2019 cohort

(NMC) — Students who are interested in pursuing a career in nursing can apply to become part of Northern Marianas College Nursing Department’s newest cohort in the fall 2019 semester. Those who meet the program’s requirements can submit their application before Friday, May 24, 2019.

The selection of students will be based on the following criteria: cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher; completion of all nursing and general education prerequisites with a grade of “C” or higher; the ability to understand, speak and write in English; and passage of the interview with the department.

Off-island applicants can be interviewed via telephone or videoconference.

The number of students selected will also depend on the number of faculty available to teach the class. At this time, the class size will be limited to 30 students. If there is not enough space for all applicants, a wait list will be established.

Students are advised to make an appointment with their advisor as soon as possible to discuss prerequisites and transcripts in order to determine current standing and progress toward meeting eligibility requirements.

Selection of cohort participants will be completed before August 2019. A notification letter will be sent to each applicant using the address designated on the application. Application forms are attached or can be picked up at the NMC Nursing Department in the Archives Office of Building O, at the NMC As Terlaje campus (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.), or may be downloaded from
