Applications for the 2013 class are being accepted now and must be completed by no later than April 1, 2013. The 2012 class is already filled. By applying to VWCC and submitting your H.S./GED records and all college course work attempted, Pam Woody (Advisor for Practical Nursing) will be able to help you with your course selection for 2012-2013. Current enrollment in missing prerequisites is not required to apply early, but must be successfully completed before entering the program.
We require all application material(s) be submitted directly to Health Professions - if you fail to do so, be aware we will not be responsible for any delays in processing your file. Complete the following and submit (if applicable) in one envelope to Pam Woody, VWCC-Health Professions, P.O. Box 14007, Roanoke, VA 24038.
Have all official sealed transcripts (high school and college) and a copy of GED scores (if applicable). Applicants should submit all sealed transcripts and required handwritten essay with the application(s) in an envelope addressed to Pam Woody or Health Professions. (When possible applicants should request official transcripts from high school and all colleges attended/attempted to be mailed to your home address. Upon receipt of transcripts, do not open the sealed official envelope(s). Put all transcripts with your program application/essay into one larger envelope and mail or bring to Miss Woody in Anderson Hall - Room 122.) GED holders must submit a copy of their GED scores. GED holders must also submit official high school transcripts if they completed at least through the 9th grade of high school. Transcripts must be submitted from ALL colleges attended (except VWCC or any other Virginia Community College). You should receive the practical nursing advising form letter after your complete academic file is reviewed (usually 3-4 weeks after submission). If any school refuses to issue an official transcript directly to student, please have it sent directly to Health Technology/Pam Woody at the address above.
Please note: The required GPA is calculated as of the end of the Fall 2012 semester. All applicants who attempt or complete college or high school courses after their initial academic file is complete must submit updated transcripts through Fall '12 prior to the April 1, 2013 deadline. High school seniors (who apply early) must provide an updated HS transcript for the grading period that ends usually in late January (must be postmarked) before April 1st deadline.
