Thank you for your interest in our nursing programs at KCKCC! 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.

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

Carrie Boorem
Academic Advisor for Nursing 

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!

Application Documents


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 to set up an account, register, and pay to take the TEAS® at KCKCC. 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.
