Admission to the Nursing Program is selective. The Nursing Admissions Review Committee is composed of faculty from the Nursing and Science division and Admissions staff. Applications will be considered until the application period is complete and all requested materials have been received in the Admissions Office. The committee reviews completed application, reviewing all records of previous coursework including grades and exam scores, the personal essay, and TEAS scores. Successful applicants will be notified in March. Admission decisions affecting students currently enrolled in spring coursework may be deferred until final grades are received. If there are remaining seats available after decisions are made in March, waitlisted applicants may be accepted by the Admissions Office until the fall class is filled.
Students not accepted into the Nursing Program are invited to re-apply for a future Nursing program or to pursue other career options offered by the college. Current Clinton students are encouraged to contact their Academic Advisor, or the Career Planning and Counseling office will offer advising regarding alternative choices.
