OVERVIEW

Admission to the Associate of Science in Nursing Program is competitive. There are more qualified applicants applying to the program than there are seats available. Those interested in the nursing program should meet with an advisor early to review the criteria and clarify the process. It is important to note that meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance to the program.

During Fall 2021 advising, it is the students' responsibility to verify with your advisor that you will be completing all prerequisite courses by the end of Spring 2022, in order to get your Ticket to Test from them.

*The Ticket to Test will give you information on the LPN to RN Advanced Placement ATI Assessment Package that you will use to help you prepare for and to take the exams required to test out of the first year.

Once you meet all of the requirements and are approved to enter the program, you will be awarded the 8 or 16 nursing credits from the first year of the curriculum. View the course requirements of the ASN program by clicking the button below.
