Admission Information

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

Students interested in applying to the Mountain View 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 program or to check TSI/STET; GPA; and reading, writing and math ACCUPLACER TM status. Admission testing is conducted in the Mountain View Instructional Support Lab Center, located in Room W-139. Please contact the Mountain View Nursing Admissions Coordinator/Advisor for more information.

For your nursing application, we will accept a stamped “copy” of official transcripts that you have on file at Mountain View. Please visit the Admissions Office to request the copy.
