Application Procedures: Nursing Career Transition Track
Students may enter the Nursing Career Transition Track Associate in Science (A.S.) degree program each May during the Summer Term. Lecture content is offered in a hybrid format (classroom meetings with some online learning activities), and clinicals are held at area hospitals. Clinical hours and times may vary per semester. Students must also attend on-campus labs.
To apply to the Nursing Career Transition Track A.S. degree program, complete the following steps:
- Submit to a criminal background check. All students entering a healthcare program with a clinical component are required to complete a criminal background check. Students must be free of offenses that could potentially disqualify them from working in a healthcare environment (Florida Statute 400.211). Admission into clinicals is at the discretion of the clinical agencies.
- Apply to Seminole State College. You must be accepted to Seminole State before you can be accepted to a nursing program. For more information on Seminole State's application procedures, visit our Admissions Department home page.
- Review the RN Career Transition Information Packet and the Frequently Asked Questions Web page for admissions criteria, course sequences and program requirements. Bring additional questions to your mandatory information session, described in step 4. If you have immediate concerns, e-mail the Nursing Admissions Office or call 407.404.6006.
- Attend a mandatory Nursing Information Session. You cannot apply to a Seminole State nursing program without attending an information session. You will receive important application information and instructions during your session.
- Take the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS,® version V) at Seminole State's Assessment and Testing Center. You must earn at least a 73 percent adjusted individual total score before you can be admitted to the Nursing Career Transition Track degree program.
- Submit your completed application packet to the Admissions Office by the stated deadline. Your application materials must be placed in a sealed envelope and delivered in person. We will not accept nursing application packets by mail. Letters will be sent to all applicants four to six weeks after the application deadline.
