Nursing (AAS at Clatsop CC)
TBCC has developed a partnership with Clatsop Community College and Tillamook Regional Medical Center to provide training for skilled nurses in Tillamook County. This degree is granted by Clatsop Community College. TBCC offers program prerequisites, general education, and nursing-related coursework. All Nursing (NUR) courses are offered by Clatsop Community College and require admission to their program as detailed below.
Registered Nurses (RNs) are caring and use their knowledge, skills and problem-solving to help individuals, families, and groups with health needs. RNs plan care and work with people to help them become healthier or to regain health after illness or surgery. Nurses teach health practices to clients and other health care providers, and frequently supervise the work of nursing assistants and practical nurses. RNs also administer medications and perform treatments for patients. Nurses work in a variety of settings, including hospitals and long-term care, schools, industry, clinics, and patients’ homes. With advanced education, nurses may work as managers, educators, public health nurses, as clinical specialists, or independently as nurse practitioners. The cost of the program is subject to change but
The nursing program is academically and physically rigorous. As a nursing student, you need to be able to grasp scientific concepts, set up and answer basic math and algebra problems and communicate well verbally and in writing. Enrollment in the Clatsop Community College Nursing program is limited. Acceptance into the Nursing program is determined by a weighted point system from a pool of qualified applicants. A student must meet the minimum requirements to be considered for admission. If the minimum requirements have been met the student’s application will be evaluated and awarded points in a competitive process. The top ranking individuals will be offered admission to the program. Remaining qualified candidates are placed on a ranked alternate list which expires when fall term commences. A program information and application packet can be obtained from the TBCC Student Services Office or the Clatsop Community College website.
A student must meet the following minimum evaluation requirements:
Please Note: If you choose to use only those college credits that you have earned in the last 7 years, any courses you took more than 7 years ago (such as writing, psychology, or nutrition) will NOT be used to meet your minimum evaluation requirements or to earn points or toward your graduation requirements. You will still have to meet those requirements before you graduate from Clatsop Community College.
If you use the COMPASS test score to meet this requirement you will still be required to take WR 121 and WR 122 (or WR 123 or WR 227) to meet Clatsop Community College graduation requirements.
The following requirements must be completed in the last seven years.
If you use the COMPASS test score to meet this requirement you will still be required to take math to meet graduation requirements.
Anatomy & Physiology Requirement
Please Note: If selected for the Nursing Program, you must complete Human Anatomy & Physiology III (BI 233) or the equivalent as determined by the Clatsop Community College Registrar’s Office with a grade of “C” or above before the start of the nursing program in the fall term.
Once accepted into the program the student will need to pay a nonrefundable deposit, pass a Criminal Background Check and meet other requirements for immunization, basic nursing skills and CPR training. These requirements can be found in the nursing application.
If you do not meet the minimum requirements for nursing program admission at this time, you may begin taking college classes as a prenursing student. An advisor will help you plan your program and select courses to meet the minimum requirements for admission.
Because of the significant number of prerequisites, general education, and nursing-related courses required and the competitive nature of nursing program admissions, TBCC has degree plans for students wishing to complete an Associate of General Studies (AGS) or Associate of Science (AS) degree with an emphasis on allied health before entering a nursing program. Students interested in this option should consult a TBCC advisor for more information.
TBCC will offer courses to satisfy all of the requirements listed above. Terms that sequenced courses will be offered appear in parenthesis. Other courses will be offered based on student demand and enrollment.
