• Advanced Placement

    Advanced placement is applicable to any student that has attended the GLTS PN program in the past calendar year.  These students are exempt from the TEAS exam, application fee, professional evaluations, and resume submission.  All required documentation will need to be completed prior to the start of the term, including a completed CORI, CPR certification, health record, vaccination record and validation of citizenship status.  All Advanced Placement applicants must complete an updated application. 

    Advanced placement for Term II: is applicable only to students that have successfully completed the first term of the GLTS PN program in the last calendar year.  The placement on the waiting list for Term II will be determined by the date of the receipt of application.  These students will receive an Application for Admission Status Form.

    All students seeking advanced placement into Term II will be required to take a challenge test for Fundamentals of Nursing. This computerized exam is a review of the basic fundamental principles that are covered in the course, ensuring that the student has retained enough knowledge to be a safe and competent student nurse prior to entering Term II. In addition, remediation work will be assigned and due prior to the first day of class.

    All advanced placement students for Term II will also be required to attend Fundamentals Lab for the last month of Term I. The specific dates will be supplied to the student by the Director.  Completion of the challenge exam, remediation and attendance of lab does not guarantee admission into Term II. After meeting re-admission criteria, advanced placement to Term II can only occur if a seat is available.  Term II and III must be repeated consecutively during the same school year, regardless of previous passing nursing course grades. Any student that did not complete Term III will return as a Term II Advanced Placement student.  All Term II advanced placement students will be required to repeat Medical Surgical Nursing and Pharmacology in addition to any other incomplete courses.

    Tuition will be determined by the final hour calculations that will need to be completed within the Program.  The following rates will be used for tuition costs:  $7.00 an hour in-district classroom hours, $11.00 an hour out-of-district classroom hours, $12.00 an hour out-of-state classroom hours and $13.00 an hour for all clinical hours.

    If enrolling in Terms II & Term III, 50% of total tuition must be paid prior to the beginning of class.

    If you are applying for financial aid, your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be completed before the start of Term II. If it is not completed, a payment plan or payment in full must be in place before the first day of Term II.
