Attention Nursing Applicants 2020-2021
In order to be in alignment with recommendations and mandates set forth from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as Governor Gavin Newsom's mandate to shelter in place, the Health Sciences department is currently working remotely. Therefore, we appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
As you are aware, many schools and businesses have made drastic changes in a proactive approach towards slowing the spread of the Coronavirus and to keep our students and staff safe. We are currently working hard to keep continuity of nursing classes and clinicals for our current students. These existing cohorts need to remain our priority at this time. However, we would like to assure you that if you submitted an application for admission by the March 12, 2020 deadline, we have your application. Currently, we are moving forward with the intent of screening and accepting a new cohort for admission for the 2020-2021 academic year. The timeline for acceptance letters, mandatory orientation, and admission requirement submits, is undetermined at this point. However, please check back on this website and/or emails for any updates.
Registered Nursing is a dynamic career opportunity requiring high levels of knowledge, critical thinking skills and a commitment to caring for the client.
Registered nurses are in great demand and Citrus College has made a commitment to offer the Associate Degree in Nursing program in recognition of that demand for registered nurses. The student who becomes an associate degree nurse is prepared to provide direct client care across the life span, as well as address acute and chronic health care needs and common well-defined health care problems in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other community health agencies.
In Fall 2007, Citrus College began offering an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN-Registered Nursing) program.
