Admission Process


Qualified applicants must have:

  • Bachelors of Science/Arts in Nursing (or Associates Degree in Nursing AND non-nursing bachelors degree)
  • A current, unencumbered nursing license
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher

*Students must have completed a statistics course prior to enrolling in NUR 520: Research Methods in Nursing. This is not an admission requirement to the university.


Admission is on a rolling basis. Students are encouraged to submit an application early to ensure a smooth transition. We will review applications until the start of each term, or when enrollment reaches capacity.


Online Application

Complete the online application form.


In an effort to remove barriers for our prospective students, we do not require a letter of recommendation.  However, applicants have the option to include a reference for a letter of recommendation when submitting the online application.

Personal Essay

Write a 1-2 page personal essay. Describe your personal and professional goals.

RN License Verification

Include your RN license number in your application for verification. Students are expected to have a current, unencumbered license to enroll.


Applicants must submit an official transcript(s) from the regionally-accredited institution granting the Bachelor’s degree and from the most recently attended institution, if not the same. Military veterans are required to submit all official transcripts from previously attended institutions to qualify for military benefits.

In the case where prerequisite requirements exist or transfer credits or waivers are sought, official transcripts are required from institutions at which the prerequisites or equivalents were completed. The Program Director may ask for additional transcripts if determined to be necessary.

Submit transcripts directly to the Graduate Admissions Office by electronic transfer or by mail.

By electronic transfer: (if prompted by your institution for an email address)

*PLEASE NOTE: Students must request official transcripts through a verified transcript service. Most commonly used are National Clearinghouse or Parchment. Check the degree-granting institutions website for the appropriate service to request. Any copies uploaded to the application are considered UNOFFICIAL and will not be accepted.*
