First Year Entry RN to BSN

Transition to Everett Community College Nursing

Be prepared to start your nurse coursework at Everett Community College.

The Nursing Transition Checklist is a detailed quarter-by-quarter list of action items required to be met by September 5th,  in order to start your nursing courses and clinicals at EvCC. The quarter-by-quarter outlines are only suggested quarters; it is never too early to start preparing.

You will enroll in an online summer transition course with EvCC Nursing that provides you details on how and where to submit documentation of the Health and Safety (immunization) Requirements and takes an average of 2-3 hours to complete. Please note that some of the immunizations requirements need to be started up to nine months before the start of clinicals. 

If you have questions regarding immunization requirements contact:

EvCC Nursing Health Professions Service Center
Location: Liberty Hall, 2nd Floor
Phone: 425-388-9461
E-mail: healthprofessions@everettcc.edu
