ADN and PN Applicants

Students that apply for the ADN program but are not chosen for entry can select to be considered for the PN program. ADN applicants who wish to be considered must make this choice on their application with the understanding that the only process to complete the ADN program would be to enter the Transition Nursing program. All eligible PN applicants will be given first priority to enter the PN clinical program.

Nursing graduates must be at least 18 to sit for their boards.

Conditional Acceptance for Low Enrollment Programs

Health Science programs with low enrollment may consider accepting students conditionally if an applicant is completing program-ready courses in the summer term. If a student majoring in one of these programs does not complete all program-ready courses by the application deadline in May, they may still apply. Programs will accept conditional students if the program does not fill. Conditionally accepted students must successfully complete all program-ready coursework by the start of the fall term.
