Admission to the Major

To be eligible for admission, students must have graduated from a state-approved diploma or associate degree nursing program and be licensed as a registered nurse in Maryland. Recent graduates may be admitted pending successful completion of the NCLEX-RN. Students applying for admission to the Nursing major must either have been admitted to the university or be currently seeking admission to the university.

Admission to the Nursing program is granted only by the department. Eligibility requirements are dependent upon the option chosen. In addition, RN students are required to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 on a 4.00 scale and obtain a proficient score on the Test of Essential Academic Skills Version V. Only one grade below a grade equivalent of 2.00 is allowed in the non-nursing courses required for the Nursing program.
