Carie Braunon 15 October 2013
Transcript of CSB/SJU Acceptance to the Nursing Major
The Nursing Major
Six prerequisite courses are required:
BIOL 121: Intro to Cell Biology
CHEM 125: Intro to Chemistry
PSYC 111: Intro to Psychology
NUTR 125: Concepts of Nutrition Science
BIOL 212: Microbiology
NRSG 220: Conversations in Culture
Application to the Nursing Major is
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:
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 health and functional abilities
Our clinical agencies require the following immunizations: MMR, TD, Hepatitis B, and Varicella or a titer to prove immunity (REPORTING THAT YOU HAD THE DISEASE WILL NOT SUFFICE)
You need to also complete a two-step TB skin test (NOT QUANTIFERON)
You must confirm that you have ability to fulfill the duties of a nurse and be cleared by your health care provider
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.
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::
How many students do you accept and when?
We accept 54 students after receiving applications and final grades for prerequisite courses (around June 5) of each year.
Students start in the nursing major that fall 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 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 in the Early Acceptance Program 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 clearances related to health and immunizations, 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 can be a confusing part of the nursing major requirements.
CPR (also called Basic Life Support, or BLS) MUST BE for the healthcare professional
CPR MUST BE from the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross.
This BLS course is designed for individuals who are health care providers in either the in-hospital or out-of-hospital setting. Topics include adult, child and infant CPR, AED and choking.
CPR (BLS) links
For American Heart Association courses you are looking for BLS/AED for Healthcare Providers::

For American Red Cross, you are looking for CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and Health Care Providers when you select a class category at this website: http://www.redcross.org/lp/cpr-aed-firstaid?gclid=COOH6YPl17gCFTRo7Aodx3YAdg.
Can I repeat a course for a higher grade?
You can repeat up to 2 courses for a higher grade. The higher course grade will be calculated into the prerequisite GPA.
Criminal Background Study
Before you begin the nursing program, you will be required to complete a criminal background study. If you have been charged with a crime, you should contact the MN Board of Nursing to determine how this will impact your potential nursing career.
