Technology requirements

The College strongly recommends using a computer that was purchased within the last 2 years. Older computers frequently cannot handle software requirements.

In many cases, financial aid may be used to cover the cost of a new computer. If you would like to explore this possibility, please discuss with a financial aid counselor.

A laptop or desktop computer


  • Mac OS 10.13 or higher ("High Sierra," "Mojave," "Catalina," or newer)
  • Windows 10 (patched and updated)

note: windows 8 and earlier is not acceptable. MacOS "Sierra" and earlier are not acceptable.

note: due to exam and simulation software requirements, a tablet or chromebook are not acceptable as the students sole computer. These devices may be used in class or other situations for casual use, but are not compatible with nursing software needs.


The following are typically part of the laptop or monitor. You must have one each of the following:

  • web-enabled camera
  • microphone
  • speakers/headphones


In addition, all students are required to have anti-virus software on their computers. This software must be updated regularly.
