Bachelor of Science in Nursing (First Year Entry)

How to Apply

Applying to the Program

Applicants work with the University's Office of Admissions to submit, complete, and monitor their application; which includes submission of the required materials. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the application is complete and true, and to be aware of all pertinent admission and application requirements.

Failure to disclose complete and accurate information (e.g. all colleges/universities attended) and/or failure to submit all required application materials may result in the denial of admission or subsequent dismissal from the University.

Applicants should submit the application and all required materials by the application deadline of January 15.  Because of the large number of applications received, we have not been able to accept late applications in recent years.

How to Apply:

  1. Submit the First Year (freshman) application. Select the First Year Entry RN to BSN program for Autumn quarter. The application includes submission of the University Personal and Nursing Goal Statements and Journal of Activities and Accomplishments.
  2. Submit all official educational transcripts to the Office of Admissions.
  3. Submit two recommendations for entry to the program. Applicants can submit the names and emails of recommenders on the application and Admissions will reach out to the recommenders. Applicants should monitor the completion and submission of their recommendations using their application account.
  4. Submit proof of meeting the math prerequisite.

Wait list

The program maintains a very short wait list; students on this waitlist are often offered admission.  If a student is put on the wait list, the Nursing Admissions Committee will contact the student immediately once a seat opens up.   Wait listed applicants are encouraged to contact the School of Nursing and Health Studies to inquire on their status at or at 425-352-5376.

Earning College Credit in High School

Applicants who have complete college coursework while in high school need to carefully review the information on earning college credit.
