Our Mission

To provide excellence in nursing education inspiring diverse graduates to demonstrate competence in clinical judgment resulting in quality, evidence-based, client-centered care to enrich the health of our community, one student at a time. 

You are urged to make an appointment with our advisor so proper guidance may be given in the selection of your courses.

The curriculum is rigorous and time consuming as students will attend 15-20 hours of class and clinical time per week. Students should dedicate an additional 15-20 hours each week to study or lab time. As a result, students are advised to limit outside employment to 20 hours or less per week while enrolled in the program.

Nursing can be a physically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding profession. Should you have questions or concerns about the ability to achieve success in any of our course, clinical,  or program objectives or requirements, please contact our nursing office.

You may also contact the  Student Accessibility and Support Services Offices for more information.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with further questions you may have about our program.  We hope you will pursue a nursing career and wish you well on your career choice!

Accreditation

The RN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and both the RN and LPN programs are approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN). Information concerning the programs as well as the criteria and procedure for admission are found in the brochures on the right side of this page.

Background Check

Admission to the Kansas City Kansas Community College Associate Degree Nursing Program does not guarantee graduation from the program, and graduation for the nursing program does not guarantee eligibility to take the registered nurse licensure examination (NCLEX-RN).

The Kansas State board of Nursing (KSBN) may deny a license to practice nursing as a registered professional nurse if the applicant has been guilty of a felony or guilty of a misdemeanor involving an illegal drug offense unless the applicant establishes sufficient rehabilitation to warrant the public trust. No license shall be granted to a person with a felony conviction of a crime against persons as specified in Article 34 of Chapter 21 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated and acts and amendments.

Also considered are the patterns of practice and other behaviors exhibiting an apparent incapacity to practice nursing as described in 65-1120 in the Kansas Nurse Practice Act (https://ksbn.kansas.gov/npa/). All criminal history must be revealed to and will be evaluated by the KSBN before licensure is granted or denied. Since KCKCC is located in Kansas, this information does not cover other states’ requirements. Please check with the Board of Nursing in the state in which you will be requesting licensure.

TEASĀ®

The TEAS® (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is a required part of the KCKCC Nursing program application process. The test assesses knowledge in the areas of Reading, English, Math, and Science. Students may go to www.atitesting.com to set up an account, register, and pay to take the TEAS® at KCKCC. There are a maximum of three (3) attempts. Official scores from TEAS® taken at other schools may be accepted; however ATI charges an additional fee of approximately $26 to send the results to us electronically, which is the only way we'll accept them.

The ATI TEAS codes for KCKCC are:

  • RN School code: KS CITY KS CC ADN
  • PN School code: KS CITY KS CC PN
