Nursing Information Sessions

The Nursing Information Session covers nursing program admissions requirements (courses and pre-admissions exam), application process, selection criteria, program cost and other additional information to assist students with preparing for application for the various nursing programs offered at Kapi'olani Community College.  Before meeting with a nursing program advisor, you should attend an in-person session or view the on-line session.


The Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program at Kapi'olani Community College (KCC) will be realigned with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa via the Hawai‘i Statewide Nursing Consortium Curriculum in the Fall 2012. Therefore, certain links will be updated within the (online) nursing information session to reflect these program changes. As an advisory, please come to an (in-person) nursing information session at Kapi'olani Community College or Leeward Community College for the updated information or read the updates on the website.
