Admission Requirements include:

  • Minimal overall GPA of 3.00
  • BIOL 221, 222, PSYC 301, PSYC 101, CHEM 110
  • Minimal combined GPA for cognates (excluding nutrition) of 3.00 needed for admission. A grade of C or higher is acceptable for any cognate course. Nutrition course, while a required cognate for completing the nursing program, is not a prerequisite for admission and therefore not included in the calculation of cognate GPA.
  • Completion of ATI TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) with ATI approved competency score of proficiency (58.7%). Outside of the United States where the ATI TEAS is not available, SAT 540/ACT 20 scores in Math, English and Reading will be considered.

The rest of the admission requirements can be found in our Nursing Student Handbook, pages 14–16:   View Here


Program Highlights


  • Emphasis on provision of care and the promotion of health for individuals and families

  • Strong clinical experiences provided in partnership with varied hospital and community agencies

  • Exposure to diverse cultural and socioeconomic groups.

  • Professional development that allows the BSN graduate to better understand the many social, cultural, economic and political issues that impact patients and influence healthcare.

  • Thorough preparation to enable student success on the NCLEX licensure examination and to pursue graduate studies.


What to expect


Students may enter the University as declared nursing majors, but the first year is typically spent in general education requirements, cognate courses and NRSG215 Introduction to Nursing Concepts.


Students are encouraged to apply for admission into the nursing program prior to completion of the spring semester of their freshman year in order to be prepared to enter NRSG216 Fundamentals of Nursing Practice the following fall semester.

Deadline to Apply

Applications for the BSN pre-licensure program are due May 15 for fall 2022 admission.
