Health Program Petition Process | Northcentral Technical College

Health Program Petition Process

We use a competitive admissions process for five different health programs: Dental Hygienist, Medical Laboratory Technician, Nursing, Radiography, and Surgical Technologist. The petition process is how you gain acceptance into the core classes for these health programs. Petitioning happens only during specific times during the year, but applications are accepted for programs with petition requirements at any time. When you are ready to get started in program specific courses and have met petition eligibility requirements, you will submit a petition and take the HESI A2 exam. Your score on the exam will determine your admittance to your program.

Petition Prerequisites

To be eligible to petition, you must be enrolled in or have completed any petition prerequisites for your program:

Nursing

  • CNA with a grade of “C” or better
  • Thinking Critically & Creatively with a grade of “C” or better (requirement waived with Bachelor's Degree)
  • General Anatomy and Physiology with a grade of “B” or better. A grade of “B-” does not meet grade requirements
  • Submit official high school transcript with graduation date listed

Dental

General Anatomy and Physiology with a grade of “C” or better.

Medical Laboratory Technician, Pharmacy Services Management, Pharmacy Technician, Surgical Technologist, and Radiography

There are no prerequisites to petitioning for these programs, however, we do recommend completion of General Anatomy and Physiology to prepare for HESI A2 exam completion.
