The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and the Texas Board of Nursing approves the ADN Transition Program. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and regulated by the Texas Board of Nursing. We are a technical program, and subject to change at any time to meet the requirements of our approvals and accreditation.

Please Note: Effective January 1, 1996, a person who has been convicted of a felony may be disqualified from obtaining licensure as a Registered Nurse. After turning in your completed application, you may be contacted for further information by email.

 

All required documents for application to the program MUST be submitted as a complete packet. You are responsible to submit all documentation, as the ADN Transition staff will not make copies or print applications for applicants.

Incomplete packets will be immediately returned to the applicant for completion and resubmission is expected of the student prior to the application period deadline. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Late applications will not be accepted.

Applicants must submit copies of official transcripts for every college attended to San Jacinto College Admissions Office. You may request photocopies from Educational Planning, Completion and Counseling (EPCC) with the Transcript Specialist, in Bldg. S-6, after submitting official transcripts to Admissions. If an applicant attended any campus of San Jacinto College, then official transcripts from San Jacinto College should be included in the application packet, as well.

Be advised, there are no exceptions to the Grade Point Average (GPA) cumulative requirement of 2.5.

It is suggested that applicants attend an information session for each application period, as information is subject to change. This is not mandatory, and registration is not required, however applicants are expected to be familiar with the information prior to application submission. We welcome all questions and look forward to seeing you there.
