  • Other expense: 80$ fee for application to Board of Nursing
  • Optional expenses: 45$ deposit for a text book.

If you want to take the text book with you the deposit will stay at ICA.

Additional Fees:

There is an 80$ fee to the Board of Nursing for your HHA certificate. It covers background check with fingerprinting and a fee for issuing the license. You will be required to bring a valid credit or debit card to the office to process this payment or can do it from home.

If you are in a good standing (no missed classes, acceptable exam scores, background check and physical is done before the courses end) we will process your application upon the results of your final test and signed skills sheet.

If you missed more than 2 full days of classes you will need to schedule catch up sessions for additional fee. There should be a signed proof of attending such catch up sessions in order for us to process your application further.
