Nursing Student Selection

All declared nursing students will be reviewed after completing their first-year courses for admission into the nursing sequence of courses that begins in the second year, second semester. At the end of the first year, the student will apply for acceptance into the nursing sequence of courses. The student must have earned the following:

  • Completion of 30 credit hours with an overall GPA of 3.0 in courses on the program plan of study.
  • Completion of 7 credits of First-Year Experience Courses; 3 credit hours of Psychology 110 and 3 credit hours of Psychology 220; 8 credit hours of Anatomy and Physiology; and 3 credit hours of Mathematics.
  • A grade of C or higher must be earned in the following courses: Psychology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Mathematics. If there are more applicants than seats available, students with the highest cumulative GPA of the above required courses will be accepted until the seats are filled. If there are students with the same GPA then students will be admitted based on the date of their application into the nursing sequence of courses. Those students submitting their application first will be admitted first.
  • Once the application is accepted, the student must earn a C or higher in Chemistry 105/106 and Chemistry 111/113 by the end of the third semester of study.
  • Students may only repeat one of the required courses for admission one time to achieve the required C course grade.
  • Students will be notified during the first semester, second year of their acceptance into the Nursing Program.
