Special Admissions Requirements for Nursing and Health Science Program Applicants

Nursing and Health Science programs have special admissions  requirements. Admissions requirements may be obtained by attending a Health Information Program Session. All applicants are required to attend a session as part of the admissions process. Participants also have the option to participate in the online Health Information Session if they are unable to attend a face to face session. A listing of scheduled sessions are below.

Due to the limited availability of admission slots in these programs at OCtech, curriculum admission is competitive; and applicants are advised to apply early. OCtech seeks to identify students who can achieve at an appropriate level in the curriculum as well as achieve diversity among its student population.
