Licensure

After satisfactory completion of all courses and the specified general education requirements of Cypress College, the individual will receive an Associate Degree in Nursing and is eligible to take the Registered Nursing State Licensing Examination.

If you have been convicted of any offense other than a minor traffic violation, it may prevent your attending clinical rotations where criminal background checks are required. You will be required to declare offenses on your state application to write the licensing exam, which may affect your eligibility to become licensed.
