Registered Nursing Assistant (NAR) course certification completion is required prior to starting the St. Olaf Nursing Program. You will need to provide documentation of the course name, location, and date of completion. Colleges, hospitals, and the American Red Cross offer certificate programs. Finding a course and obtaining NAR certification is your responsibility.
Northfield Retirement Community (NRC) offers a course that many St. Olaf nursing majors take. All information, including upcoming course dates, times, and course fee is available on their website. Registration is required. Registration fees are waived for NRC employees.
Students may be able to use loan funds to cover the cost of a NAR course. Please contact the St. Olaf Financial Aid Office for more information.
