Pacific Lutheran University ABSN Admission Process
When you are ready to start our ABSN admission process, our goal is to make it as straightforward as possible. As a prospective student, you will work with an assigned admission counselor who will be there to champion your entry into nursing school. Overall, these are the three key steps of the process.
1. Contact Admissions
Our ABSN program is not for everyone. It is for individuals with at least 60 non-nursing college credits and individuals who hold a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. So before you do anything, be sure and verify your eligibility with an ABSN admission counselor.
As part of the conversation, we also want to make sure our program is a good fit for you and vice versa. Just because you meet the initial admission requirements does not mean you should start the enrollment process. Our ABSN program is a rigorous, full-time learning path, so we want to make sure you have the right resources in place to commit to your education.
2. Plan for Prerequisites
As a condition of enrollment, you must satisfy nine ABSN prerequisites. These courses lay the foundation for your success in our ABSN program, while also being key to nursing career preparedness.
Your previous field of undergraduate study typically influences what prerequisite courses you need to complete. For example, if you come from a biology background, you may have already satisfied most of the prerequisites. But the only way to know how many courses you need to take is by talking to your admission counselor.
Once you know how many courses you need to complete, you and your counselor will create a prerequisite completion plan that aligns with your preferred start date in the ABSN program.
3. Submit the Application
Once you have satisfied all of our ABSN admission requirements, it is time to put your application together. Before submitting your application, ask your admission counselor to review it to make sure you have done your due diligence.
