Program Overview

Admission Requirements

For Spring and Fall 2021 Entry Term

A minimum overall undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and a minimum overall graduate GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.  

Minimum of a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) from an accredited college or university. Completion of a pre-licensure program with a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree may fulfill the minimum degree requirement, which will be determined on a case by case basis. To be used to satisfy degree requirement, evaluation of foreign educational transcripts must show degree(s) earned that are the U.S. equivalency of degree(s) required by the program.

Applicants must have completed a 3 credit hour undergraduate or graduate statistics or biostatistics course with a grade of "B" or higher. 

Official transcripts are required from all universities and colleges ever attended. Only in the case of transcripts from international colleges/universities will an official course-by-course transcript evaluation be accepted in lieu of an official transcript. Official transcripts should be sent to NursingCAS. To remain official, all transcripts must remain in the original, unopened, sealed and stamped/signed envelope from the Registrar's office of the issuing institution. Alternatively, NursingCAS will accept official electronic transcripts from the registrar's office at your prior institution. Electronic transcripts should be directed to nursingcasinfo@nursingcas.org 


An official, professional course-by-course evaluation based on official transcripts and documents is required for all foreign educational transcripts and documents from one of the following three credentials evaluation services: Josef Silny & Associates, Inc., World Education Services (WES), Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE). Silny and WES are recommended. Official transcript evaluations based on unofficial transcripts, documents or copies will not fulfill this requirement.

As part of the online NursingCAS application process, applicants provide the names and current email addresses for three individuals they have asked to serve as their referees. Referees should be individuals qualified to critically assess the applicant's prior academic (usually college professors), employment, artistic, research and/or clinical experience (clinical or research supervisor/manager) and qualifications (as applicable) as well as the applicant's potential as a graduate student in the field/program selected. Once the online application is submitted, each referee will receive an email notification directing him/her to the online site where he/she can complete the reference form and submit his/her letter of recommendation.
