Beginning with fall 2021 applicants to the Associate Degree Nursing program, students will be allowed to apply to the program if they are enrolled in a state approved Nurse Aide I that will be completed by May 15, 2021 (spring semester). Gaston College will be offering six Nurse Aide I classes during spring 2021.

The Associate Degree Nursing fall 2021 deadline will be extended to December 17, 2020.  This is to allow additional TEAS test dates for students who have not yet taken their ATI TEAS.  Please be aware that ALL TEAS dates for November are already full.  If you plan to apply and need to take the TEAS you should schedule a test date prior to December 17 now, before all December tests are full.
