Nursing Program Forms and Instructions

Note* The Spring 2022 nursing application will be open September 1-30, 2021.

Beginning with the Spring 2022 nursing application for the Fall 2022 class, ARC will be moving to one nursing application period per year. Applications will be accepted each spring in February for the following Fall and Spring semesters.

Questions regarding this change can be directed to: ARCNursingApplication@losrios.edu


A lab class that is approved as a prerequisite for admission for the American River College Nursing Program (courses listed on the ARC Nursing Articulation Grid), completed during the COVID-19 pandemic, not before the Spring 2020 semester, and included an online lab, will be accepted as meeting the prerequisites for admission to the ARC Nursing Program. This will only apply to lab classes taken at the time when an online format was the only availability. Online science lab classes taken prior to Spring 2020 will not be accepted.

When transferring courses from colleges outside the Los Rios District, you will notice there is a 'T' in front of your grade. This is for internal purposes only - please ignore it.
