Associate Degree in Nursing
Western New Mexico University offers a program leading to an Associate Degree in Nursing. It is a limited enrollment program. All students interested in applying for admission must first be admitted to WNMU as specified in the Western New Mexico University catalog. Students may then contact the Department of Nursing to apply for admission to the program. All nursing students are advised by nursing faculty. All students admitted to the nursing program must have a minimum 2.75 grade point average. Students planning to apply for the program are encouraged to enroll in supporting courses if they are not accepted into the program. The number of supporting courses completed is also considered in the student selection process.
Students who have been convicted of a felony involving immoral behavior or substance abuse may not be eligible for licensure in New Mexico. Any individual who has a felony conviction should contact the New Mexico Board of Nursing prior to enrolling in the WNMU Nursing Program. If during the program, a student is unable to complete a clinical rotation because he/she is excluded from a facility for criminal record, he/she will not be able to complete the program.
