APPLICATION CHANGE - Effective Spring 2018

Each incoming class will be randomly selected from candidates who have 70 points or more. Students with less than 70 points are not eligible to apply.


A new version of the "Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS)" commenced September 1, 2016. Students who completed the previous version (TEAS V) may submit those test scores until the application period for the fall 2018 nursing class. A minimum passing composite score of 62% is required for entry into the ARC Nursing program. Beginning with the spring 2017 application, if a student has multiple test scores within one year, only the first/earliest score will be accepted unless evidence of remediation is provided. For more information, please see the TEAS Guidelines form on the TEAS tab to the left.
