The admission decision will be based primarily on the student’s grade point average (GPA) to date, with particular attention to the quality of performance in Regis prerequisite science and pre-requisite/co-requisite courses, ID 230 Interdependence of Health Professions in the U.S., and NU 305A Foundations of Nursing.

To be considered for the nursing major, all students must:

  1. Have a minimum 3.0 (B) cumulative GPA.1
  2. Have a minimum 3.0 (B) cumulative science GPA in the following sciences: BI 105 Anatomy and Physiology I; BI 106 Anatomy and Physiology II; BI 108 Microbiology; BI 212 Pathophysiology; and CH 105 Intro to Chemistry- Nursing. Any prerequisite science courses transferred into Regis will have the final course grade calculated as part of the overall science GPA requirement of 3.0 (B).1
  3. A minimum grade of 2.7 (B-) in each of the following courses: ID 230, The Interdependence of Healthcare Professions in the U.S., and NU 305A, Foundations of Nursing. All other non-nursing prerequisite course grades must be a 2.0 (C) or higher.
  4. Applicants have one (1) opportunity to repeat one (1) course in which they did not achieve the required minimum grade. If the applicant achieves the required minimum grade on their second attempt, they will remain eligible to apply to the Nursing program. If a current student applicant fails to achieve the required minimum grade in more than one course, they will not be eligible to apply to the Nursing program.
  5. The Young School of Nursing reserves the right to request an applicant interviews with the Associate Dean for Prelicensure Nursing or designee.
