Licensure Degree

Admission to the Hutchinson Community College Associate Degree Nursing Program does not guarantee graduation from the program, and graduation for the associate degree nursing program does not guarantee eligibility to take the registered nurse licensure examination (NCLEX‐RN).

The Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) may deny a license to practice nursing as a registered nurse if the applicant has been guilty of a felony or guilty of a misdemeanor involving an illegal drug offense unless the applicant establishes sufficient rehabilitation to warrant the public trust, except that no license shall be granted to a person with a felony conviction of a crime against persons as specified in Article 34 of Chapter 21 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated and acts amendatory thereof or supplemental thereto. Also considered are the patterns of practice and to other behaviors exhibiting an apparent incapacity to practice nursing as described in 65‐1120 in the Kansas Nurse Practice Act. See KS Nurse Practice Act (PDF). All criminal history must be revealed to and will be evaluated by the KSBN before licensure is granted or denied.  Since HutchCC is located in Kansas, this information does not cover other states’ requirements.
