PANS and Kaplan Admission Test

Pre-Admission Nursing Session (PANS)

Individuals planning to apply to the Nursing program are REQUIRED to complete online PANS within two years prior to the program application deadline date. These sessions are intended to provide students with information about our Nursing program.

To complete PANS, please:

  • Register for PANS-C100 Pre-Admission Nursing Session (Note: If you have not already completed KCC’s Online Learner Orientation, you will first be required to register for, and complete, KCCS-C100 before you will be able to register for any course at KCC, including PANS-C100)
  • Access PANS through your Moodle account (via the Bruin Portal)
  • Complete the entire PANS
Kaplan Nursing Admission Test

For students applying to the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 Nursing program, Kaplan testing will be available onsite at KCC in the Nursing Department on designated dates. Testing dates will become available starting in mid-February.

LATEX Environment Statement

Due to the broad range of equipment, manikins, materials and supplies used in the College’s practice and simulation laboratories, and within a vast number of hospitals and other types of clinical facilities serving as sites for student clinical education, the certified nurse assistant (CENA), dental hygiene, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nursing, paramedic/EMS, physical therapist assistant (PTA), and radiography (RADI) programs are NOT latex free environments. Students with latex allergies considering any of these health programs should direct questions to their physician to ensure it is safe for them to participate prior to applying to the program.

Positive Drug Screen Statement

Students with a positive drug screen will be deemed ineligible to participate in clinical education. Furthermore, as clinical education is a critical requirement of Nursing, Allied Health and Emergency Medical Services programs, the student will be dismissed from their current program of study. For students who would like to be considered for re-admission, they should refer to their program’s policy of re-admission and direct questions to the program director.
