The Waitlist

Because an accepted applicant's plans may change or they may not accept the admissions offer, the program maintains a very short waitlist; however, the waitlist typically experiences very little movement. There is no way to know how many will accept, decline or have a change of plans. If an a student is offered a admissions on the waitlist, the Nursing Admissions Committee will contact the student if a seat opens up.
