Admission to the A.A.S. in Nursing
To be considered for admission to the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing, the applicant must:
1. Have a GPA of 2.5 in the following courses:
3. have scored at least in the 60th percentile on the PAX-NLN Admission Exam. The PAX exam may only be repeated at intervals of every three months or more.
4. submit three (3) letters of reference using departmental forms
5. complete a departmental application
6. GPA of at least 2.0 and be on good non-academic standing.
After the above criteria are met, the admissions committee will review the applicant’s admission criteria and file for acceptability. Upon acceptance by the admissions committee, a random selection process is used to place qualified applicants on a waiting list for the next available space in the nursing program. All applicants are notified in writing of their acceptance or rejection and placed on the waiting list if accepted. If the application process is not completed by the deadline, new information will have to be submitted to be considered for the next admission process.
Student transcripts must reflect passage of prerequisite and/or required courses with a C or above on the first or second attempt within the last 5 years to be admitted. If extenuating circumstances have occurred, the student may petition the faculty in writing for an exception.
