Please read the admission requirements below. If you meet the required prerequisites you may proceed with the application process.
Step 1. Review the Online Supporting Documentation Form. If you meet the prerequisites listed within the form you may then go ahead and submit it. You will need electronic copies of your transcripts for this portion of the application process. (We will not take high school course work that is more than 5 years old.)
Upper-level courses cannot be used to meet prerequisite course requirements. i.e. Statistics, Anatomy & Physiology and Microbiology will not be looked at in place of Algebra and Intro to Biology.
Students who do not fulfill all items outlined in the Nursing Application Supporting Documentation Form are encouraged to begin work on the prerequisite requirements by applying for the Health Studies A.A.S.degree using the General Application for admission.
Step 2. If you meet the prerequisite requirements outlined in the Online Supporting Documentation Form you may then submit the Fall Online Application for Nursing.
Step 3. You will need one professional reference. Have the person that will be giving a reference for you complete the online Reference Form.
Applicants who have not completed pre-requisites by the application deadline will not be reviewed. Incomplete Applications will not be processed.
