1. How do I apply to the Nursing Program?

You must complete a Glen Oaks College application, have taken orientation and the college ACCUPLACER entrance test, and get information for financial aid (if necessary). THEN you may interview with the Director of Nursing (DON) for help with your plan for entering the program and submit your nursing application at that time, or after, to the DON – nursing office!!!!! This is very important as you will receive the most current information on changes which have or may be taking place in the program.
