transfer notes

Admission to ACM's Nursing program is very competitive; completion of these classes does not guarantee acceptance into the ACM program.

A minimum grade of "C" is required in all science coursework; however, note that admission is competitive with grade point average being important.

ACM requires a Criminal Record check prior to entry into the Clinical phase of the program.

CPR Certification for Health Care Professionals is also required at application (offered regularly at ACM).
