Central Oregon Community College’s (COCC’s) nursing department is offering an orientation session at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, April 9, in Room 153 of the Boyle Education Center on the Bend campus.

The purpose of the meeting is to review the selection procedure for students interested in applying to COCC’s Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program as well as the prerequisites for applying and support courses necessary for the AAS degree. It is not necessary to be enrolled at COCC to attend this orientation, and reservations are not needed. However, admission into COCC’s Nursing program requires in-district residency. Contact the Admissions and Records Office at 383-7500 for details.         

Currently, COCC’s nursing program admits about 36 students each spring to begin fall-term course work. The admission process allows the nursing students to begin the program as a cohesive group, provide faculty members more opportunities for student interaction and offer more continuity within the program.
