Application and Admission Guidelines
Applicants are only permitted to apply to 1 program at the School of Nursing and Health Studies during the same application cycle (i.e., the same semester).
Admission is granted subject to passing of all conditions stated on the Certificate of Admission. This includes FBI background clearance, a passing drug test, valid immunizations (including flu vaccination), and complete financial registration. The Accelerated BSN includes several clinical rotations, which require that students have a background report without any infractions. If a student’s background report contains any infractions, regardless of how they were resolved or adjudicated, he/she will not have cleared the background check and the conditional admission will be withdrawn.
Please note that student admissions are conducted on a case-by-case basis and the faculty of the School of Nursing and Health Studies reserves the right to waive any requirement or request additional information from applicants.
