Faculty Profiles

Mountain View’s Associate Degree Nursing program is 24 months long and leads to the Associate Degree Nursing Associate in Applied Sciences degree. Admission is in the fall only.

After completion of prerequisite courses and admission to the ADN program, courses are completed in four regular-length semesters, excluding summers. Students need to plan two to three hours of studying and preparation time for each hour of class and clinical experience. The demands of the nursing program are such that students may not be able to work full time while enrolled in these courses.

Graduates will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, commonly referred to as the NCLEX-RN.

Note: Support courses completed at colleges and universities outside the DCCCD system must be approved for transfer credit prior to the semester in which the course is required as stipulated in the curriculum outline.

How to Get Started

Admission to the Associate Degree Nursing program is by a competitive selection process based on a mathematical formula to compute the applicant’s score.

Information sessions are suggested for prospective students and are held on selected dates from January through May.

Application and Admission

Mountain View’s Associate Degree Nursing program admits students in the fall semester only. The application deadline is each May/June for the upcoming fall semester which starts in August.

Criminal Background Check and Drug Testing

All students enrolled in Health Occupations programs are required by Dallas/Fort Worth Hospital Council member facilities to undergo a criminal background check and drug testing prior to beginning their clinical experience.

Clinical Rotations

To increase students’ preparation for the workplace as a registered nurse, Mountain View’s ADN program maintains a high one-to-three ratio of class time to clinical time (one hour of class for every three hours of clinical rotation).
