May graduates: May graduate only are asked to submit their applications to the State Board of Nursing during a specified week each spring. For Spring 2017 the designated week is April 3-April 7. ID photos (to be attached to the State Board application), will need to be turned in to the Nursing Office, LA 345, by March 1, 2017. An email will be sent to students when the ID photos are ready for pick-up.
December graduates: There is no specific deadline for December grads to submit applications. Applications can wait until candidates are nearing completion of Virtual ATI. Please submit ID photos before Thanksgiving break to ensure a timely return of your photo.
NEW!! Beginning October 1, 2015*
* 12-week access: students will have access to Virtual-ATI for 12 weeks, beginning once the student has completed their initial survey and is within 30 days of graduation. This will encourage students to review and sit for NCLEX sooner leading to higher pass rates and retention of knowledge. The student can purchase an additional 12 weeks, if necessary.
