Students who are unable to provide evidence of documented legal immigration status or citizenship will not be able to complete the required clinical experiences, which will impact their ability to meet course outcomes. In addition, they may be unable to obtain an R.N. license and secure employment in a health care setting.
  • High school transcript with a GPA of 3.0 or higher with courses to include three units of mathematics (one of which is algebra) and two units of science, with related laboratory or the equivalent.
  • Acceptable SAT/ACT scores.
  • Two letters of recommendation. Letters should be from teachers, counselors, employers, coaches, etc.
  • Essay on why you would like to pursue a career in nursing

Freshman nursing students may only start in the fall term.
