Information about the Nursing Program
Admission into the Nursing Program is competitive. It is highly recommended that students interested in pursuing a career in nursing meet with their counselor each semester and attend a Nursing Information Session. In order to be considered for the nursing program, a student must file an application with the Admissions Office between November 2023 - February 2024 for the Fall 2024 Admission Cycle.
IVCC currently has dual admissions agreements with Illinois Central College and Sauk Valley Community College for students attending or paying taxes to Midland School District, Fieldcrest School District, Henry-Senachwine School District, and Bureau Valley School District. This agreement allows students to attend either community college at in-district tuition rates. Students will be coded as out-of-district and may be asked to prove residency with the Cashier to receive the in-district rate.
Important note: This does not imply residency for the purpose of admissions into limited admissions programs such as nursing. Students who reside out of the district and within these dual admissions areas are still considered out-of-district for the nursing program and will be admitted only after all qualified in-district applicants have been admitted.
The formula for admission is based on three components: Pre-nursing assessment scores, core course grade points, and core course completion. We have developed a nursing calculator, available online at www.ivcc.edu/nursingcalculator to assist you in estimating your score for nursing admission. Please note that this online calculator is only an estimate and the final, official scores will be calculated by the Admissions Office.
November - February 2024
The Nursing application will be available in online.
The IVCC Counseling staff strongly recommends that students interested in Nursing see a Counselor each semester to plan course work and admission to the program. We also recommend attending a Nursing Information Session prior to starting coursework at IVCC. These sessions are absolutely essential in the planning process for application to the IVCC nursing program.
