5/09 IUON Courses. Students who graduate from any International University of Nursing (IUON) in St. Kitts partner school who want to be licensed in California can now apply directly to California or can apply for licensure by endorsement after being licensed in another state. In speaking “officially” with Bobbi Pierce, Licensing Analyst, California Board of Nursing, she has informed us that the “official position of the Board” is the IUON courses are comparable to those in programs in California.

9/06 Chabot College Nursing Workshop Notes

5/06 Nursing Workshop (per Stephanie Foley/Nancy Cowan)

  • A 10-year study: Students who repeated Anatomy withdrew more often from the nursing program.
    • The higher the English 1A grade, the better predictor of succeeding in the program. 
  • An “A” or “B” in English 1A will offset repeating Anatomy
  • Students must read at the grade 14 level;
    • Some textbooks on par with med school.
  • Every year, Chabot draws somewhere around 18 up to 35 names.  Often the "in-district" folks whose names are pulled from the lottery, end up going somewhere else, or declining the program - thus the alternate pool.
  • Nancy was not disparaging of students who lived out of district.  Students who don't live "in district" go into the alternate pool. 
  • The Fall 2007 application will ask if the student has applied before.  The implication is that they may take this into consideration.

1/06 Nursing Application/Transcripts (per Sarilee Janger) If a student is attending Las Positas, that student does not have to submit an additional Chabot College application or LPC transcripts.

11/05 Nursing Program Highlights (per Nancy Cowan presentation/Stephanie Foley)

  • All transcripts must be on file with Chabot Nursing within 1 month of the application deadline or they won't be considered.
  • If student has a 3.0 overall GPA and a ‘B’ in English they will definitely make the cut score.
  • Chabot does look at repetition of Anatomy, but Nancy implied that a strong grade in English would override the Anatomy repeat.
  • Hospitals are now requiring all students to have a background check. A conviction does not necessarily prevent them from doing clinicals or being employed. Nursing students must take a one-time urine test.
  • Nancy emphasized the importance of being strong in math at the required level, as nurses have to make so many calculations for medication doses. They need to score 92% on the Chabot nursing tests on math calculations.
  • For the 2005 class, about 27 students got admitted from the alternate pool (which is comprised of both "in-district" and "out of district" students.)

3/06 Listserve for Nursing Program Counselors (per Nancy Cowan)
