New Application Requirement for Nursing Program
NOTE: Effective spring semester 2013, Parkland College's registered nursing program will require all nursing applicants to be Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) or to have completed an Illinois Department of Public Health-approved CNA course. This means that students applying to Parkland's Associate Degree Nursing program (ADN) for spring 2013, which has an October 1, 2012 scoring deadline, will have to show CNA credentials in order to have their applications accepted.
You are eligible to take the Illinois CNA exam if you:
1. have completed an Illinois Department of Public Health-approved course; OR
2. have completed comparable course work plus 40 hours of supervised clinical experience in an accredited nursing program; OR
3. have completed a U.S. Military certificate documenting comparable course work plus 40 hours of supervised clinical experience.
Don't delay in obtaining your nursing assistant credentials! Visit Parkland's CNA web page
