Nursing & Health Science Admissions

Health Science and Nursing programs are limited enrollment and have special admissions requirements that must be met before students can be accepted to the clinical phase of most programs.

We recognize that these program admissions requirements and policies may become confusing. Please contact us about any questions that you have. Prospective nursing and health sciences students also need to become familiar with our Health Science and Nursing Resources Web page.

Special Admissions Requirements

Students must meet all requirements to become eligible for program entry or "Program-Ready." Once all program-ready requirements are complete, an application must be submitted online for entry consideration to the clinical phase of the Nursing or Health Science programs. Attempt policies, as well as other guidelines explained in the Health Science and Nursing Resource Web page, apply.
