To prepare for your adviser discussion, be sure to review the admissions requirements for the program and collect any information you know will be needed for the application, such as past transcripts.

You must be able to prove that you have an active, unrestricted RN license in your state. Applicants must also have at least a year of nursing experience caring for adults in acute care settings before admission.

Necessary Documents

The following information must then be submitted through Nursing CAS:
