Registered Nurse applicants who wish to enroll in the RN to BSN Program must submit a formal application for admission to the University and must fulfill all stated admission requirements. The applicant must submit the following:
- Current USA RN license without restrictions.
- Graduation from a state-approved nursing program as evidenced by all official transcripts.
- Minimum 2.5 GPA.
- Professional resume.
- Two letters of recommendation.
Applicants must begin the program within one year of notification of admission. Application materials remain active for one year following submission and inactive applications are shredded after one year.
If an applicant fails to meet the requirements for admission, he or she may appeal the decision in writing to the Director of the RN to BSN Program. Admission may be offered to those applicants who have less than a 3.0 GPA, but demonstrated strong work experience and the potential to succeed in the program. Upon completion of four courses, the student’s record will be reviewed. All students must meet progression standards in order to continue in the program. If a student fails to meet the requirements for progression, he or she may appeal the decision in writing to the Co-Directors of the GAPS Nursing Programs.
