Equity Statement

In response, we firmly commit to exposing and eradicating racism by reasserting diversity, equity, and inclusion as one of our nursing program’s core values. We are committed to fostering a climate that is inclusive and welcoming of all students and faculty.

LVN-RN Program Fall 2021 Cancelled: Due to the pandemic, and the affect on our student nursing clinical experience, we have decided to not offer the LVN-RN Program for Fall 2021. We will still admit a generic RN class and you may apply for that program.  

TEAS Exam: The TEAS 7 version of the Exam will be out in October of 2021. So for the next application timeframe, Chabot accept the TEAS Version 6 or 7.

Chabot is planning to hold an ATI-TEAS exam in 2021. Please check the TEAS page on the sidebar navigation menu for more information.
