Important information for prospective RN students

California State Bill 1309 was implemented in academic year 2007-2008, mandating that all students meeting the established prerequisites and selection criteria for enrollment are required to complete an assessment/readiness test. Those students that do not meet the minimum score will be referred to appropriate remediation. Students will be allowed one year to remediate and successfully retake the assessment/readiness test. Any student not meeting the remediation requirements will be required to restart the application process as a new student.
