ASN Slide Show - admission criteria and a little about our program.

General Information Regarding Admission to the ASN Nursing Programs

  • Applications are accepted beginning August 25 of each year for the following academic year (applications for the Fall 2015/Spring 2016 year will be accepted beginning August 25, 2014).
  • An academic year consists of a fall and the immediately following spring term.
  • Admission is granted on a first-come, first-served basis once the application is complete and space is available. 
  • TEAS scores are only valid if taken in the year in which you submit your application or later.  In addition, you can only test twice in a calendar year. 
  • The Traditional ASN Program admits 48 students in the fall term and 48 students in the spring term of every academic year.
    • Students may apply for only one term (either fall or spring) within an academic year.
    • Students applying for the fall term after it is full will automatically be considered for the spring term as long as space is available. 
    • Once both the fall and spring terms are full, a wait list is created. 
    • Students must be eligible for admission to be placed on the wait list.
    • When space becomes available, students are moved into the first spot available (either fall or spring) regardless of the original term indicated on the application.
    • The wait list will be capped at 40.  Once the waitlist is capped, students will no longer be reviewed for Nursing Program eligibility.
    • Students not moved from the wait list or those who do not make the wait list, must reapply for the next academic year.
  • The LPN to RN Accelerated Program accepts 24 students each academic year and begins in the fall term only.
    • Once the class is full, a wait list is created and eligible students are moved into spots as they become available. 
    • The wait list will be capped at 20.  Once the waitlist is capped, students will no longer be reviewed for Nursing Program eligibility.
    • Students not moved from the wait list or those who do not make the wait list, must reapply for the next academic year.
