Admission to the BSN Accelerated Program
Students who have already received a bachelor’s degree have the option to apply for the Accelerated BSN track, an intense 12-month program for exceptional students. Students who have met the requirements for admission to UNMC can apply through NursingCAS (http://nursingcas.org/), a centralized application service for students applying to registered nursing (RN) programs at all levels.
Admission to the College of Nursing is a competitive process and is based primarily on your campus preference, the GPA of the required prerequisite courses, the total number of prerequisite courses completed at the time of the application, the receipt of positive references, and a personal statement. For the Accelerated program it also includes an interview with qualified applicants. See the Undergraduate Admission Requirements Policy (5.2.3) in the Student Policies section for details.
Students Whose First Language is not English
For applicants whose native language is not English, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Pearson (PTE) is required for admissions. Test results must be recent (within five years prior to applying to UNMC). See the English as a Second Language - Undergraduate Students policy (5.2.5) in the Student Policies section for details.
The College of Nursing may accept transfer credit earned in an accredited college. The College is the final authority on granting transfer credit and determining how transfer courses and credits apply toward a degree in nursing. Transfer credits are recorded with no grade or quality points assigned. Grades from transfer courses may be considered for admission purposes. See the Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policy (5.2.8) in the Student Policies section for details.
