Tradition BSN Admissions Requirements
Because the professional nurse deals with lives of people – adults and children – it is essential that nursing students exhibit a high caliber of academic and personal performance. Criteria for entrance into the School of Nursing are established in an attempt to ensure our students and graduates meet the profession’s high standards. These criteria cover four major areas: academic, testing, health and criminal background checks.
