If you are a newly admitted applicant, you are expected to attend New Student Orientation, a 2-day information seminar that will give you information and tips to help you successfully complete the program. The date, time and location of New Student Orientation are sent in the admission letter.
Attendance of New Student Orientation is mandatory.
Texas Administrative Code (TAC) requires all students in health related programs to be immunized prior to enrollment in classes where patient contact is a component.
Nursing Students are required to have health insurance throughout the program. TCC does not offer College-sponsored student health insurance.
The following companies offer student insurance but are not endorsed by TCC:
You must have a current American Heart Health Care Provider CPR Certification.
CPR courses are provided through our Community & Industry Education on Northeast Campus and through most area hospitals. The TCC Nursing Department usually offers the course prior to the long semesters. Courses are also offered at various other local agencies.
Note: Certification must be approved only by the American Heart Association.
After being accepted to the program, but before classes begin, you must undergo and pass a criminal background check and urine drug screening at your expense. There are no exceptions. Admission is conditional until the results for these screenings are verified.
