PRIORITY APPLICANTS

Applicants are selected based on: 1) strength of recommendations, and 2) quality of completed application. One half of all placements are reserved for current CSU, Chico, Butte, and Shasta College nursing students, however these students are still subject to the requirements and deadlines outlined above. The remaining slots are filled with students attending other colleges and universities, RN Refresher students and RN graduates.

CSU, CHICO REFRESHER STUDENTS
Refresher students may apply while concurrently participating in a refresher program; however, they must be "refresher course completed" before they are able to participate in an RCNP clinical placement.
