College of Nursing / Apply to FSU Nursing / Freshman Nursing Admission Process

Freshman Nursing Admission Process

Admission Process

Effective Fall 2011, the College of Nursing transitioned to freshman admissions for its bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) traditional program.  To be considered for the Nursing Freshman Admission program you must apply to FSU and indicate nursing as your major on your FSU application.  Students must first be admitted to FSU as a freshman before they will be considered for admission to the College of Nursing.  The Baccalaureate of Nursing program is a limited admission program and acceptance to FSU does not mean you are accepted into the Freshman Nursing Program.  Minimum qualifications for freshman admission to the College of Nursing includes an unweighted GPA of 3.7 and either an SAT score of 1710 or higher or an ACT score of 25 or higher.  Admission to the program is very competitive and typically only 25 to 30 percent of qualified applicants are accepted.  The freshman application deadline for admissions is October 15 for early consideration.
