Application Information:

To enroll in the Nursing Science Program, a student must apply and be accepted. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission into the Program. The following application procedure should serve as a guide when applying to the program.

All Applicants:

1. Complete the application to Rose State College, if not currently a student at the college.
2. Take the following COMPASS assessment tests (see minimum scores required for consideration in Program Advisement): Writing Skills, Reading Skills, and Pre-Algebra/Numerical Skills.
These tests are given in Room 210 of the Student Services Building. Each test requires approximately thirty (30) minutes for completion. The Student Services Building is open Monday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. A photo I. D. and a testing admission ticket (obtained from an enrollment advisor) are required for the tests. There is no cost to take the tests and an applicant may repeat them one time during each enrollment period to improve their scores.
