Associate in Nursing (ADN-DTA/MRP)
Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Ready Pathway
Yakima Valley College (YVC) offers a six-quarter program (two academic years) that leads to an Associate in Nursing Direct Transfer Degree (ADN-DTA/MRP). Students complete four quarters of pre/co-requisite and supporting courses prior to applying for the Nursing Program. Nursing courses proceed consecutively with objectives for each course accomplished before the student proceeds to the next course. Students who complete the ADN-DTA/MRP program and successfully pass the RN licensure exam (NCLEX-RN) will be considered as having met the minimum requirement for transfer into Washington State RN-to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs and, if accepted into an RN-to- BSN program, will be awarded senior standing.
The six-quarter program is offered in fall, winter, and spring on the YVC Yakima campus. Students are admitted in fall, winter, and spring quarters, subject to a sufficient number of qualified applicants.
Application and Acceptance Periods
YVC offers three opportunities for application and acceptance to the program.
- June 30 for fall quarter admission
- December 20 for spring quarter admission
- September 15 for winter quarter admission
All applications are due by 4:30 pm on the application deadline date.
