All applicants must complete the following requirements:
The Nursing (NUR) program is considered a limited-enrollment program since it receives more applications than it has available space. Acceptance is based on a competitive process with a point system, not a waiting list, and applicants are ranked based on grades earned in the general education classes required for the Nursing program, such as ENG-111, PSY-150 and BIO-168. Grades of "C" or better are required in all program-related curriculum classes. Only students who have submitted the Nursing program application and are accepted through the competitive process can register for NUR classes.
NOTE: All BIO classes must have an associated lab and be completed within five years of the first NUR class. The math proficiency must have been completed within 10 years of the first NUR class. A grade of "C" or higher is required in every class.
The following items are required by the program application deadline for the Nursing program selection process:
If accepted into the Nursing program, students are required to attend a mandatory departmental orientation and complete all clinical site requirements.
The Nursing program continually evaluates its acceptance procedures and reserves the right to make changes as needed. Speak with a Health Sciences advisor to verify the requirements to submit a program application for the application cycle for which you plan to apply.
