Admissions Requirements

Nursing is a competitive program that requires students to have a strong background in biology, chemistry and math. All applications are reviewed holistically for admission to the college. It is strongly suggested that SAT and/or ACT scores be submitted.

In order to be admitted directly into the Nursing Program, successful applicants must also take the NLN (http://www.nlnonlinetesting.org/ ) and receive a minimum score of 100. Accepted students who do not successfully score 100 or above on the NLN or who otherwise lack prerequisite academic background may be offered admission into Liberal Arts: Math and Science. These students will be advised by a Nursing Faculty member who can suggest coursework appropriate to the area of interest.

The NLN pre-admission exam is required. A minimum composite score of a 100 is required for admission into the nursing program.
