How to Apply



Florida State University College of Nursing utilizes a holistic admissions process that assesses an applicant’s unique experiences alongside traditional measures of academic achievement.  Community service, essay and interview components are assessed along with grade point average.  This approach allows us to use multiple sources of information to get the fullest picture of each applicant’s potential and helps ensure the potential for success both in school and later as a professional.  The entire application packet is evaluated by the Undergraduate Admissions Committee which is composed of faculty from the undergraduate program.



Current FSU Students are not required to reapply to FSU. 
Applicants who have not taken courses at FSU for three (3) consecutive semesters will be required to reapply to the University.
