AP Full-Time Nursing Program application deadline extended to April 15, prepares LPNs to become Registered Nurses

The application deadline for Kellogg Community College’s Advanced Placement Full-Time Nursing Program has been extended to Monday, April 15.

The previous application deadline was Feb. 1; the extension allows potential applicants nearly three additional months to apply to the program and aligns the AP Full-Time Program deadline with the AP Part-Time Nursing Program deadline, which is also April 15.

KCC’s Advanced Placement Nursing Program is designed for students who have a current Michigan LPN and who are seeking to complete Level II coursework to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing. Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN, the National Council Licensure Examination required to become licensed as a registered nurse.

Students in the AP Full-Time Nursing Program will begin classes in May. The AP Part-Time Nursing Program begins in August. Application materials and detailed information about applying to the Advanced Placement Full-Time Nursing Program or the AP Part-Time Nursing Program are available on the KCC website at kellogg.edu/nursing-admissions.

Accreditation and Admissions

The KCC Nursing Program is approved and authorized by the Michigan Board of Nursing, and the College’s Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Program is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. (For more information about the ACEN, contact the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing at 3390 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30326, or at 404-975-5000 or visit acenursing.org.)

These accreditations let students and future employers know that KCC’s program meets the most rigorous and highest national standards of nursing education, and provide graduates with further employment, educational and scholarship opportunities only available to students from nationally accredited nursing programs.

Admission to KCC’s Nursing programs is selective due to space limitations, enrollment limitations imposed by regulatory bodies and program admission requirements, and a limited number of applicants are accepted to the programs each year. Applicants seeking admission into KCC’s health programs must first fill out a general KCC application and complete the required courses for each program before submitting a program-specific application.

For more information, contact KCC’s Selective Admissions Office at seladm@kellogg.edu or 269-565-2625.
