1. What are the requirements?
2. When should I apply?
Students who are reviewed but deemed as not ready for the Nursing program can be accepted for Pre-Nursing to finish their pre-requisites at USF. Because of the way Nursing students are reviewed, it is recommended that a student finish their pre-requisites with St. Francis. It will give them a better chance at getting into the program.
Application Deadline for Pre-Nursing: Rolling Admissions, however, to get into the best classes it is advised to have everything in prior to the following dates:
Fall Semester: April 1st
Spring Semester: November 1st
Students who are determined as “Nursing Ready” will be sent before the Nursing Admission Committee on specific dates each semester. In order to be eligible for review, a student must submit their transcripts and meet all admissions requirements, as well as pass the TEAS exam with a 59% or higher
Application Deadline: Rolling Admissions – however, priority will be placed on those that fulfill their application requirements early.
Reviews for nursing program:
Fall Semester: October 15th, November 1st, and November 15th
Spring Semester: April 1st, April 15th, May 1st.
All others will be reviewed on a case by case basis, pending space in Nursing program. Students deemed eligible but not accepted into the Nursing Program will be placed on a “wait-list” for the semester. Should an eligible candidate decide not to come to USF, a wait-listed student will be contacted for their seat in the program.
