Final Acceptance/Ranking List for the 2021/2022 Application Cycle

Due to clinical displacements during the Coronavirus Pandemic, we delayed admitting our incoming Spring 2021 cohort. They became our Fall 2021 cohort. Thus, the nursing program will only accept 20 students from our 2021/2022 application cycle for Spring 2022 admission. All qualified applicants received an email explaining the options. Please click on the link to see your admit/waitlist standing. 

Spring 2022 Acceptance/Waitlist 

No waitlist will be maintained beyond filling the two nursing cohorts for Fall/Spring. For more information on the ranking process and admission policy go to Notification of Acceptance into the Registered Nursing Program on How to Apply

Application Cycle 2022/2023 Admission Cycle:

The Application Period for the Registered Nursing Program is January 15 through February 15 for admission into the following Fall and Spring semesters.

We are NO Longer Accepting Applications with a previous nursing program failures

Ohlone currently receives over 150 nursing student applications from students seeking admission into the RN program with some being previous failures out of Ohlone’s nursing program or other California nursing programs.  This means that many students are never given a chance to enter the program, while others may have 2 or 3 opportunities (depending on the number of failures) to complete a nursing program. After careful review by the Director, Assistant Director, Dean of Health Science and the nursing faculty, a decision was made to exclude previous failures in those applicants that are eligible.

If a student submits an application, subsequently admitted and the previous failure is discovered, then the student will immediately be dismissed from the program.

Change in Math Prerequisite:

Beginning Fall 2020 All nursing students are encouraged to complete MATH Statistics that is equivalent to MATH 159. Other discipline Statistics courses will NOT be accepted (Psychology, Biology, Sociology, etc.). As we transition, we are accepting Intermediate Math or higher in lieu of Statistics. Check with an Ohlone Counselor if you have questions.
