Can I obtain additional points on the application for current medical certifications?

Yes - you can obtain additional points on the application for specific and current medical certifications.  Please refer to the AS in Nursing Information Sheet on the left-hand side of the page under "Resources" for an overview of how applications are scored. 

To calculate your application points, you must use the certificate with the highest points. Ex: If you have a CMA and an EMT certification, you will score a “2” not a “3."

  • Current Certificate in CNA or EMT = 1
  • Current Certificate in CMA or Paramedic = 2
  • Current (unencumbered) LPN License = 3 3.0
