Three Rivers extends RN program application deadline
Three Rivers College's Department of Nursing and Allied Health has extended the application deadline for its day and evening Registered Nurse program in Poplar Bluff to March 17 at 5 p.m.
"Our first concern was the time lost to weather closings this winter and making sure that we gave our applicants time to catch up from that," said Staci Campbell, Chair of the Department of Nursing and Allied Health. "This is also our first application cycle with our increased prerequisites, and we wanted to allow students to complete their pre-requisite courses of Intermediate Algebra and Introductory Chemistry in the summer 2014 session."
Applicants for the Nursing programs must be enrolled in or have passed MATH 103 or 153, have completed or be enrolled in CHEM 111, take the NLN-PAX-RN pre-entrance exam and achieve a minimum score of 105, and have a minimum 2.5 GPA across all college credit hours completed to be eligible for admission into the programs.
Campbell advises that all admissions materials, including official copies of transcripts from high school and other colleges, must be received by the March 17 deadline. Application forms for the RN program can be found online by going to trcc.edu/admissions and clicking on "Application." Prospective students must also complete a free Three Rivers application.
