Alert to Pre-Nursing Students who plan to apply to the OCCC Nursing Program in March 2014

Dear Applicants:

Thank you for your interest in Oregon Coast Community College’s (OCCC) Nursing Program. 

OCCC is in the process of signing a contract with a new accrediting college partner. As a result of this partnership, we are forced to make changes in the requirements for the OCCC Nursing Fall 2014 application.  We realize that some of these changes can be frustrating to students because of the timing. However, to order to maintain our ability to provide an accredited degree, there are no other options at this time.

Please review the revised application that is on the college website, with a particular focus on the list of required classes and the point sheet. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 541-867-8548 and our secretary, P. J. Pippin, will be happy to answer your questions or schedule an appointment to meet with me. You may also direct your questions to Barbara Kessel @ 541-867-8521. as you may know, she is the Nursing and Health Occupations Advisor.
