Acceptance into the Nursing program is competitive. Because a specific application procedure is required, it is important to talk with a college advisor when applying to Peninsula College and to review the content within the links below. Advising is provided through Student Services.
The Nursing program begins once a year during fall quarter.
Application Deadline for Fall Entry: May 1, 2023, 9:00 am

Please contact Dr. Alana Murphy, Director of Nursing, at email@example.com with specific questions that your general advisor or the Nursing Program Specialist is unable to answer
Submitting Your Application
Stage 2 is the process of applying to the Nursing program specifically. Once the above requirements are completed you can begin the application process by enrolling spring quarter in the Nursing Application Canvas course, which is open during Spring Quarter every year.
Completing the core requirements at Peninsula College will likely allow you to apply to other nursing programs with most requirements met. This is not a guarantee as every school has a unique set of requirements.
All persons who are 18 years of age or older, graduates of accredited high schools, or participants in the Running Start Program are eligible for admission to Peninsula College; however, admission to the college does not guarantee admission into specific professional/technical programs. The nursing program is among those for which an additional application is required. The criteria for admission and directions for making an application to the nursing program are outlined on this website and within the application link. The professional judgment of the nursing admittance committee will be given major consideration in making decisions relating to admittance into the nursing program.
