The Nursing Major

CHEM 125: Intro to Chemistry
PSYC 111: Intro to Psychology
NUTR 125: Concepts of Nutrition Science

DUE May 1
Students MUST submit an application form by May 1.

A minimum prerequisite course GPA of 2.75 is required.

See our website to obtain the application form:
http://www.csbsju.edu/Nursing/Application-to-Nursing-Program.htm

Acceptance Process
June: We preliminarily accept the top 54 qualified students based on prerequisite course GPA (grades in the 6 prerequisite courses).

August: Students who complete all of the clinical requirements are offered final acceptance.

Note: If we have more than 54 qualified applicants, we cannot accept all students who apply.
Some notes about clinical requirements
Our clinical agencies require the following:
Immunizations: MMR, TD/TDaP, Hepatitis B, and Varicella
Two-step TB skin test (NOT QUANTIFERON)
Negative drug/alcohol screening
Criminal background study clearing you for direct patient care.
Confirmation of your ability to fulfill the duties of a nurse and be cleared by your health care provider

More information
Review our website carefully; it has all of the information related to our nursing program:

What if I have taken equivalent courses somewhere else?

Check our website to see which courses we have approved as equivalent transfer courses.

http://www.csbsju.edu/Nursing/Application-to-Nursing-Program/Approved-Transfer-Equivalent-Pre-Requisite-Courses.htm
Do you take transfer students?
Transfer students are considered after all other qualified CSB/SJU students have been accepted.

See our website for our transfer policy:
http://www.csbsju.edu/Nursing/Application-to-Nursing-Program/Policy-on-Transfer-Students.htm

How many students do you accept and when?
We accept 54 students annually. The application deadline is May 1.

Students start in the fall in the nursing major and spend 3 years in the nursing program.
How many students apply?
We typically have over 100 students coming to CSB/SJU declaring nursing as a major

Of these, approximately 70-80 apply to the nursing major

Of these, 54 are accepted.
Can I be accepted based on my ACT score?
We do have an Early Acceptance Program (EAP) for students who: 1) have an ACT composite score of 27 or above, and 2) declare nursing as their major upon application to CSB/SJU.
Early Acceptance does not mean automatic acceptance

Students admitted in the EAP are given priority acceptance if they: 1) maintain a prerequisite course GPA of 3.00 or above, and 2) do not receive a grade lower than a BC.

See our website for details on early acceptance: http://www.csbsju.edu/Nursing/Application-to-Nursing-Program/Early-Admission-Program.htm
What are the clinical requirements?
Once a student has been preliminarily accepted in June, he/she MUST provide documentation of CPR for the health professional and documentation related to immunizations, drug/alcohol screen, functional abilities, and a criminal background study.

Details are found at: http://www.csbsju.edu/Nursing/Application-to-Nursing-Program.htm
Help with CPR
CPR (also called Basic Life Support, or BLS) MUST BE from the American Heart Association and MUST BE for the healthcare provider.

Can I repeat a course for a higher grade?
Prerequisite, corequisite, and NRSG-designated courses may be repeated one time. For academic reasons, a student may repeat no more than a total of two courses required for the nursing major to replace a course grade; courses with W (withdrawal) are included in this total. If a student repeats a prerequisite, corequisite or NRSG-designated course, the higher grade is used to calculate the nursing GPA.
