Effective for the Spring 2021 semester, the RN-BSN program will now be a direct apply program. Following submission of the application, applicants should send their official transcripts for a complete transcript review.  Once the transcript review is completed, results of that review will be emailed to the applicant. A link to the application will be posted in August when we will begin accepting applications for the Spring 2021 semester. We encourage prospective applicants to review our requirements before applying. All requirements and application deadlines will remain the same.
