Application to Professional Nursing Sequence

Current Viterbo University students

Application to the professional nursing sequence

Students wishing to enter the professional nursing sequence at the sophomore level must complete a formal application.  Students must have completed all prerequisites by the end of the semester in which the application is submitted.

The priority deadline for the Fall cohort is April 15, with late applications accepted only if space allows. The priority deadline for the Spring cohort is November 15, with late applications accepted only if space allows. The Nursing Admission Committee will review current student records after publication of the spring semester grade reports. Letters of acceptance/denial will be mailed by mid June for the Fall cohort and by mid December for the Spring cohort; contingent on final grades in prerequisite courses.  The committee will admit the most qualified students based on cumulative GPA, prerequisite GPA, science GPA and previous academic records. Preference for admission will be given to the most qualified students.

The school may find it necessary to deny admission to a qualified applicant because of enrollment limits in a cohort. Depending on the number of qualified applicants, meeting the minimum criteria for admission may not be sufficient to be admitted to the chosen cohort. Entrance is a competitive process. Current Viterbo students who qualify, but are not admitted to the cohort of their choice will be guaranteed a spot in the next cohort if they remain enrolled at Viterbo full-time and maintain the academic criteria, such as cumulative GPA and prerequisite grade requirements. 

Students who do not qualify may submit an application for only one subsequent cohort. Applications are not automatically carried forward. Applicants who have applied in the past are given no special consideration and are reviewed as a member of the current applicant pool.
