A Letter from our Program Director

Dear Associate Degree Nursing Program Candidate:

Thank you for inquiring about the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program. Enclosed you
will find program information, including the admission requirements, and an admission
application for the ADN Program at the Bryan Campus of Blinn College.

The ADN Program begins a new class twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. The ADN
program is designed to be completed in two years. We also admit a new LVN-Transition class
once a year in the summer. The LVN-T program is designed to be completed in one year.

If you wish to be considered for admission into the program, you must submit evidence of
meeting all of the Application/Admission requirements. It is the applicant’s responsibility to
ensure that all application information has been received at the Blinn College ADN Program
office, and that their admission file is complete.

If you have questions once you have reviewed the application packet you may call 979-691-2012
or email timmye.posey@blinn.edu.

Best wishes in the pursuit of a rewarding career in nursing through our Associate Degree
Nursing Program at Blinn College.

Sincerely,




Mary Lohse, MSN, RN
Program Director

The following are requirements for application to the Associate Degree Nursing Program. All of

       Spring or Fall semester must reapply to the college).

   •   Submit a completed Associate Degree Nursing Application to the ADN office. (Please
       note that admission to the ADN program is a separate process from admission to Blinn

                          ADN Applicant Information


Description

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) measures basic essential skills in the academic
content area of reading, mathematics, science and English and language usage. The test is
intended for use primarily with adult nursing program applicants. The objectives assessed on the
TEAS exam are those which nurse educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure
entry level academic readiness of nursing program applicants.

   •   Learning Strategies: Your guide to Classroom and Test-Taking Success
   •   TEAS Pre-Test Study Manual
   •   TEAS Online Practice Assessments
   •   TEAS Transcripts

ADN Program Instructions

   •   Applicants must take TEAS version V. There are other versions and it is important to
       select the correct version.

   •   Applicants must take TEAS V for Program Type: ADN
       There are other program types (such as BSN, LPN) and it is important that you select the
       correct program type.

   •   After applicant submits ADN application they will receive a letter from the program
       office giving that applicant instructions for taking the TEAS.

   •   If the applicant has previously taken TEAS, the exam results must be dated within a year
       of the first day of class in the ADN Program.

   •   If applicant takes the TEAS on the Blinn campus, those test results will be provided
       directly to the ADN office by the Center for Student Development.

   •   If applicant resides out of town/state, the TEAS may be taken at another educational
       institution or testing facility. NOTE: It is important to make sure you have the correct
       version and program type when taking the TEAS. Please have test scores sent to the
       ADN Program mailing address.

          If you have questions, please contact our program office at 979-691-2012
                                ESSAY INFORMATION


The purpose of the essay is to give the applicant the opportunity to demonstrate their writing
skills. Each applicant will be given a question to answer in essay form and must complete the
essay in a specific amount of time. Applicants will complete their essays on the same day they
take the TEAS. The Center for Student Development will forward complete essays to the ADN
Program office.

For applicants residing outside the local area, arrangements can be made to complete the essay at
some other educational facility. Applicants must contact the ADN Administrative Assistant to
make these arrangements. Do not contact assistant until you have received your eligibility letter
regarding the TEAS.

Any applicant who does not complete an essay is still eligible for admission to the program;
however, that applicant will not receive any points in this category and this could make the
application less competitive.
