Acceptance to the ADN (Associates Degree in Nursing) and PN (Practical Nursing Certificate) programs at Holyoke Community College is competitive and space is limited in each program. Students who successfully complete the ADN program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam to become a Registered Nurse (RN). Students completing the PN program are eligible to take the NCLEX-PN exam to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
The deadline to apply each year is February 1. There are prerequisites that must be met prior to applying to either program. To learn more about these programs and the respective requirements, it is required that you attend a Nursing Information Session prior to February 1 and no more than one year ago. Each session lasts approximately one hour and is conducted by a member of the Division of Health and Life Sciences at HCC. No reservations are necessary.
