Current Viterbo University Students
(full-time status - minimum of 12 credits - at Viterbo)
Application to the professional nursing sequence
Students wishing to enter the professional nursing sequence at the sophomore level must
complete a formal application for admission by April 1st prior to the fall semester of desired
sophomore nursing classes. This application is available online. Students must have completed
all prerequisites by the end of the spring semester in which the application is filed. The
completed application packet must be received by the deadline date in order to be
considered for admission.
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 June 15th. The
committee will admit the most qualified students based on cumulative G.P.A., prerequisite
G.P.A., science G.P.A. 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 the professional nursing sequence.
Depending on the number of qualified applicants, meeting the minimum criteria for admission
may not be sufficient to be admitted to the professional nursing sequence. Entrance is a
competitive process. Students not granted admission may either:
a) make application one more time in the subsequent year or b) pursue a non-nursing major.
Students may re-apply once
Those who wish to re-apply must submit a new application for admission. 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.
Individuals who re-apply must be currently enrolled at Viterbo University.
