Second Degree BSN Undergraduate Program
All applicants will be reviewed in an individual and holistic manner. No single factor will determine a student's admission.
Although academic criteria (cumulative GPA, grades earned in science courses, and failed/repeated courses) is an important factor in admission consideration, additional non-academic information is also important.

All applicants who receive offers of admission will be required to consent to a criminal background check. A history of criminal conduct or convictions may result in withdrawal of the admission offer. See "Criminal Background Checks" section on page 36 of the School of Nursing Student Handbook for the School policy.
In addition, the Board of Nurse Examiners has identified certain circumstances that may render a potential condidate ineligible for licensure as a registered nurse in the State of Texas. See "Eligibility to Take NCLEX-RN Examination" section of the School of Nursing Handbook or access the BON website: www.bon.state.tx.us for declaratory order information.
