Program Start Date:
Prospective students may apply anytime and are accepted from deadlines throughout the year. Early application is encouraged so the student's transcripts can be evaluated. Applications will be reviewed upon receipt and students will be notified of their acceptance by letter or phone.
This program offers an accelerated format for those possessing a degree in a non-nursing field and meeting prerequisites. Any associate, bachelor, or higher degree is acceptable. Students maintain a full-time status for 15 months - the last six weeks of which are spent in a one-on-one preceptorship.
Program Admissions Criteria
Applicants are evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
- Associate's or Bachelor's degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 from a regionally accredited institution
- Meet program technical standards
- Completion of the general education pre-requisite courses prior to January enrollment.
Program Application Process
To be considered for admission the following items must be submitted to Nursing's Centralized Application Service:
- NursingCAS application
- Written personal statement
- Program/career awareness questionnaire
- Official transcripts from all colleges attended
We strongly suggest that you begin working on your application as early as possible and submit no later than four to five weeks before the published deadline. This will allow time for NursingCAS to verify transcripts and other submitted documents.
