Applications are accepted August 1 through September 1 for spring program entry, and February 1 through March 1 for fall program entry. Applications will be available on this website only during application periods.
Completed applications consisting of all requested documents must be received by the last day of the application period to be considered. If the last day of the application period falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline for submission will be the last working day preceding the deadline. Late applications will not be accepted.
Applications and supporting documents will be accepted only during an application period and can be turned in to the Nursing Program Office in the Health Sciences Center, room 152, or the Health Sciences Division Office, room 101.
The following application procedure should serve as a guide when applying to the program.
- Apply to Rose State College (if not currently enrolled).
- Applicants must be admitted to the college through the Admissions office before application to the Nursing Science Program can be made.
- Official college transcripts(s) of coursework not completed at Rose State College must be submitted to the Admissions office.
- Submit a request for a degree audit for the Nursing Science Program. (Only required if the student has out-of-state credits) Information regarding the degree audit and how to submit can be accessed online.
Submit the Nursing Science application to include:
- College Transcript copies from all institutions, including Rose State College. You may request a "true copy" when you submit these to the Admissions Office.
- Next-Generation Accuplacer test results: Writing, Reading, and Pre-Algebra. All applicants must take the Accuplacer exams within three (3) years prior to application. Obtain official copies of your scores from the Admissions office.
Information about Accuplacer testing can be found at: https://www.rose.edu/content/admissions-aid/enrollment-and-specialized-testing/accuplacer/
- If applicable, a copy of certification of training or a letter from your employer (on company letterhead) documenting previous or current work experience in a health-related field.
The applicant pool consists of all applicants who meet minimum admission criteria and can complete any remaining pre-requisite requirements prior to enrollment in the program. Candidates are numerically ranked based upon the point criteria below. Selections for admission begin with the candidate with the highest points and continues down the applicant pool list until all available spots for that class are filled.
Applicants are notified of acceptance around the first week of May and December.
Criteria for Program Selection
A minimum score of 100 points is required for application submission; however, earning the minimum points does not guarantee acceptance to the program. The minimum number of points needed for acceptance will vary each application period based on the competitiveness of the application pool. Please refer to the Degree Sheet/Advisement tab for the current application requirements listed on the Beginning Track Nursing Advisement.
