Welcome to the Cabrillo College Associate Degree Nursing Program Home Page.


Please read the following information for key changes to our application process.

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program at Cabrillo College begins in the fall and spring semesters of each year. It is a four semester program.

Effective spring 2015, the Cabrillo College Nursing Program transitioned to a more effective application known as the Multi-Criteria Screening Process (MCSP). This allows applicants to declare their strengths and background more thoroughly. For a high demand program, nursing faculty are finding that the multi-criteria application contributes to a positive impact on student success.

Please go the Multi-Criteria Screening Process link below for specifics.

Class selection for the program will be determined based on new applicants from the MCSP and from students entering from the wait list. Current wait listed students will find information at the web site link below.

The application period for spring 2016 entry is now closed. Applications were accepted from May 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015. In fall 2015 we will be accepting applications for fall 2016/spring 2017 entry. The application period dates are still to be detemined. Please check back soon.
