Fall 2020 Prerequisite Deadline

**After fall 2016, we no longer accept applications for the Traditional BSN track. We offer three types of entry in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN): Freshman Direct Admit, Accelerated BSN and RN-BSN.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Accelerated track (BSN) is specifically designed for the student with a baccalaureate degree in another field who wants to become a Registered Nurse. This limited-access program is a fast-track to a professional nursing career. It is an intensive four-semester program of full-time academic study for motivated individuals looking for a challenging and stimulating career in nursing.

Applicants with a degree can only apply to the Accelerated track. Due to the intensity of the track, the College of Nursing strongly recommends that students refrain from working throughout the duration of the track.

Within the application, the College of Nursing reviews three main components:

  1. An obtained Bachelor’s degree with a cumulative 3.0 or higher
  2. Prerequisite Science GPA: 3.0 or higher                                                    
  3. Personal interview (not all applicants are invited to interview)
