Nursing Conditional Admission Application

Fall 2018 Nursing Conditional Admission Application

Background and Eligibility
Conditional Admission to the PLU School of Nursing

PLU provides
a direct admission process for application to the School of Nursing. It gives a select number of full-time, first-year students conditional admission to the BSN program. This admission process is competitive, and seeks to admit students with strong college preparatory coursework and test scores.

Students offered conditional admission and who meet the following academic requirements will be granted guaranteed admission to the School of Nursing beginning either in the fall or spring of their second year:
  • Students are required to complete ALL pre-nursing coursework during their first year at PLU
  • Students are required to earn a 'B' grade or higher in ALL PLU coursework
There are four admission decision dates for Nursing Conditional Admission: October 15, November 15, December 15 and January 15. Students who submit all admission materials and the online Nursing Conditional Admission application prior to one of these dates can expect a conditional admission decision prior to the next decision date. The final deadline to apply for Nursing Conditional Admission is January 15, 2018. The School of Nursing will send final offers of conditional admission by February 15.

Those not offered conditional admission may still complete the pre-nursing coursework during their first year at PLU, and apply to the School of Nursing after one full semester.
