The Nursing program uses a competitive admissions process. The petition process is how you gain acceptance into the core classes for this health program.

Petitioning happens only during specific times during the year, but applications are accepted for programs with petition requirements at any time. When you are ready to get started in program specific courses and have met petition eligibility requirements, you will submit a petition and follow the process for your program to determine admittance to program classes.

Petition Prerequisites

To be eligible to petition, you must be enrolled in or have completed any petition prerequisites for your program.
