The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program at Cabrillo College begins in the fall and spring semesters of each year. It is a four semester program.

Class selection is done by lottery which includes all multicriteria applicants who achieve the minimum 45 points.

We recommend that you meet with an Academic Counselor before applying if you have taken prerequisites at other colleges to be sure that they meet Cabrillo's Nursing prerequisite requirements. A counselor may also help you determine if you meet the minimum multicriteria points required.
