Direct Entry MSN Admissions Process

Once an admissions adviser has verified your eligibility for the Direct Entry MSN program, you can begin your journey toward an accelerated nursing education. While there are several steps to our admissions process, your adviser will be there, helping you take each one. We’ve even created a streamlined process that allows you to submit your information via an online portal.

Admissions Checklist

While the process of applying to nursing school may seem daunting, our admissions team is ready to help you navigate the process. In fact, individuals often tell us they chose our program based on the level of personalized attention they received from their advisers.
