Those in the community interested in the field of nursing are invited to attend a free Nursing Program Information Session. Held throughout October, the sessions focus on the three nursing programs offered by Cuesta College. Attendees will receive a basic overview of the pre-requisite coursework, admission criteria, program requirements, and the application processes. 

“Our nursing program continues to be one of the best in the state of California, with extremely high passing rates on the licensure exam,” said Cuesta College Director of Nursing & Allied Health Marcia Scott. “And this is the 50th year of the Nursing Program at Cuesta College! It is an exciting time to explore a career in nursing at Cuesta.”
