Transfer BSN

Students must have a minimum college GPA of 3.0 with C or better in math/science, or 2.8 with at least a B- in Anatomy & Physiology to be considered.

Transfer admission is very competitive and the average admission GPA is higher than the required minimum. Students do not have to complete all the pre-requisites to apply. The nursing curriculum is 2 years (4 semesters) from the August you begin.

Schedule a meeting with admissions for help evaluating your transcript and eligible transfer credits.

Accelerated BSN

The application process can begin 1-1 ½ years before the January you wish to begin. This time frame is recommended to allow students to complete remaining pre-requisites.

To be considered for admission, students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 with a C or better in all science courses, or a minimum GPA of 2.8 with a B- or better in Anatomy & Physiology. GPA may be based on the applicant’s entire academic record or calculated using transcripts from the last three years of college attendance, whichever is highest.

The College utilizes the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEASĀ®) for Nursing Students for admission. This test measures basic essential skills in the academic content area domains of reading, math, science, and English and language usage. It is designed to provide an assessment of a student's overall academic preparedness for nursing related content. To register for the ATI TEASĀ® for Nursing Students, go to ATI Testing website. The test must be taken within 24 months of the student's anticipated start date. The College requires applicants to have an ATI TEAS minimum score of Proficient Academic Preparedness Level.
