Admission to the Nursing Program
Any student admitted to EMU may declare a nursing major, but all students must complete an application to begin the clinical level of the nursing program which typically begins during the junior year. Students may begin the clinical nursing program in either the Fall or the Spring semester.
If you’re a prospective first-year undergraduate student, find your admissions counselor and start the conversation. If you’re a transfer student, contact the admissions counselor who works with transfers. RN to BSN students should contact the RN to BSN office. Masters of Nursing students should contact the graduate and professional studies office.
Nursing Clinical Program Admission Requirements
Students are eligible to apply to the clinical level of the nursing program when they have met the following admission requirements:
- cumulative GPA of 2.8 at the time of application
- 58 semester hours of college credit completed by the time they begin the clinical level
- Kaplan Admission Test
The nursing department reserves the right to adjust the current admission criteria when outcome assessment data demonstrates the need for such changes.
