Applicants who have minor deficiencies in meeting the admissions criteria will be reviewed and may be granted conditional acceptance to the Nylen School of Nursing Graduate Program. Conditionally accepted students must complete specified conditions within set time frames indicated in the letter of acceptance. Failure to comply with set conditions will result in an inability to begin or progress in the program. However, enrollment may be limited to the best qualified candidates in the order of receipt of full application requirements if the number of applicants exceeds the enrollment limit.

  • Students with undergraduate cumulative GPA less than 3.0 may be accepted into the Clinical Outcomes Post-Bachelor's Certificate Program. If students demonstrate successful completion of 10 credit hours of non-clinical graduate course work from the certificate program with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, they may apply/reapply to the master's program.
  • Students who are non-degree seeking may enroll in non-clinical graduate courses for the purpose of self-enrichment and professional development. No more than 12 credits from non-degree seeking students may be applied toward degree requirements.
