Nursing Program Applicant Update:

Dear Students,    

The Chabot College nursing program remains fully committed to the education, training and preparation of future nurses in the community. Unfortunately, our nursing program is experiencing faculty vacancies that will prohibit some required courses to be offered in the fall semester of 2022. For this reason, the nursing program will not be admitting a class of new students in August. 

A list of this year’s qualified applicants will be generated, and students will be given an option of deferral for the next incoming class, which is anticipated in August 2023. Please notify Director Washington if you wish to be removed from the list.

We are not accepting new applications for Fall 2023. There will not be any information meetings during this fall semester. Meetings will begin again in the Spring 2023 for Fall 2024.

Thank you,

The Chabot College Nursing Program
