ABSN Admission Process

When you are ready to start our ABSN admission process, we aim to make it as straightforward as possible. As a prospective student, you will work with an assigned admissions representative 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 those with a non-nursing bachelor’s degree. Before you do anything else, verify your eligibility with an ABSN admission counselor.

As part of the conversation, we also want to ensure 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 ABSN admission process. Our ABSN program is a rigorous, full-time learning path, and we want you to have the resources to commit to your education.

2. Plan for Prerequisites

As a condition of enrollment, you must satisfy seven ABSN prerequisites. These courses lay the foundation for your success in our ABSN program and are 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 admissions representative.

Once you know how many courses you need to complete, you and your representative 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 our ABSN admission requirements, it is time to put your application together. Before submitting your application, ask your admissions representative to review it to ensure you have done your due diligence.
