Get Experience & Prepare

Confirm your interest in nursing, prepare academically and develop the necessary skills and experience:

Apply 

You apply to nursing school at least six to eight months before you want to start the program. Identify programs that match your interests and complete an application.  Some steps take more time to complete than others, so plan ahead! A shortage of nursing faculty has created a bottleneck in admissions at some schools, and many are impacted with long waiting lists, so get started early.

For additional help with your professional & graduate school preparation and application come into the Career Services Center or contact your Professional & Graduate School Advisors.
