Welcome to the Associate Degree Nursing web page where you will find information about the nursing program at Modesto Junior College. Modesto Junior College’s nursing program has been educating nurses for over 50 years. We have an excellent reputation within the community and with our industry partners. The program’s curriculum is robust and well rounded, offering 324 hours of classroom instruction and 972 hours of concurrent clinical experiences in local health care settings. The Allied Health facility is state-of-the-art with a fully staffed simulation lab, 24 bed skills lab and two large lecture classrooms with videoconferencing capabilities. Program evaluations from our students, faculty, graduates and employers are overwhelmingly positive. 

During the summer, we coordinate work experience classes for our students that compliment and reinforce learning. The program’s board pass rate exceeds state and national averages while the attrition rate (student drop out) is below those averages. The vast majority of our graduates find employment within one year of graduation within Stanislaus and Tuolumne counties. 

MJC offers articulation pathways for our nation’s veterans and licensed vocational nurses desiring to continue their education. We also have an articulation pathway for our graduates to continue for a bachelors of science degree in nursing at California State University (CSU) Stanislaus. We do our best to accommodate transfer students and foreign graduates on a space available, and case by case basis. 

We are dedicated to assisting students pursue their dream of becoming a registered nurse. This site is designed to help you answer the questions you may have about how and where to begin. You will find general program information links on the left while specific documents, forms and links to additional information are on the right. We look forward to helping you on the journey and are excited to have the privilege of being a part of your nursing education. You are the nurses of tomorrow!
