How are people accepted into the Nursing Program?
When making the selections we look at the student pre-req GPA, TEAS-V Test Scores, bonus points for A&P, submitting material prior to the deadline and how many times it took you to pass your NCLEX.

This is an out of pocket expense and cannot be paid by financial aid.  You will also have Background/immunization/drug screening fees that will be out of pocket (financial aid cannot be used).
