Jefferson School of Nursing
Application Deadline

Nursing

Admission is on a rolling basis and is divided into the Admissions Review Periods outlined below.

To be reviewed for a particular period, all application materials must be postmarked by the indicated date and should be submitted together in a single envelope.

All students who meet the postmark date for the review period will have the same chance of earning acceptance to their respective program regardless of whether the application was received at the beginning or the end of the review period.

You need not complete all prerequisites before you apply, but the majority of your science prerequisite coursework should be completed before an admissions decision can be made. All prerequisites must be completed before you enter the program. You may also earn credits through standardized tests, including CLEP. Admission is competitive, as there are a limited number of seats in each class.
