Apply to Nursing Program

You must apply to Northeast Texas Community College before you apply to Northeast Nursing.  Please follow the 7 steps to success.  www.ntcc.edu  

Once you have your Student ID and Eagle Email you may then apply to the Nursing Program. 

A drug and criminal history check will be done prior to admission. All background checks are now done through the Texas Board of Nursing. If the criminal background check identifies any circumstances that would render you ineligible for licensure by the board, it becomes an issue between the student and the Texas Board of Nursing. No applicants will be admitted into the program without a clean background check or a declaratory order. Please review the following information regarding the criminal history check.

The Texas Board of Nursing has identified certain circumstances that may render a potential candidate ineligible for licensure as a registered nurse or licensed vocational nurse in the State of Texas. The Board provides individuals the opportunity to petition for a Declaratory Order as to their eligibility in accordance with Article 301.257 of the Nursing Practice Act. (Deferred order, prosecution, or adjudication - a determination by a court that is withheld or delayed for a specific time period.)

If you are required to answer "YES" to any of the following questions, please go to the Board of Nursing website and download, complete, and submit the Declaratory Order paperwork to the Board of Nursing.
Processing your Petition may take from three (3) to six (6) months after you provide all required documentation and depending on your circumstance. Once all requested documents have been received, you will be notified that the Petition has been transferred to the Enforcement Department for review.

  • Have you ever been denied licensure by any licensing/certifying agency in any state, country or province?
  • Have you ever had disciplinary action taken against you by any licensing/certifying authority in any state, country, or providence?
  • Have you ever been convicted of a crime or received a deferred order, with or without an adjudication of guilt, for felony or misdemeanor offense other than a minor traffic violation?
