Admission Information

The Texas Board of Nursing has given initial approval for an Associated Degree Nursing Program at Mountain View College. We admitted our inaugural class in the fall of 2011.

Students interested in applying for the Mountain View College Associate Degree Nursing Program will need to schedule an appointment with an advisor to review eligibility requirements. This review is needed to establish whether more courses must be taken prior to applying to the Nursing Program or to check TSI/STET, GPA, and Reading, Writing, and Math ACCUPLACER TM status. Admission testing is conducted in the Mountain View College Instructional Support Lab Center located in room W139. Please contact the MVC Nursing Coordinator/Advisor for more information. 

Please contact the Mountain View College Nursing Admissions Coordinator/Advisor for more information.
