Registered Nurse students are admitted in the Spring semester on a space available basis and upon completion of all core coursework. Students are responsible for reviewing the Program of Study Requirements and the requirements of the Dr. F. M. Canseco School of Nursing; and must meet foreign language and writing intensive course requirements for graduation. See Academic Regulations-Undergraduate. Admission into the nursing program is highly competitive and completion of prerequisites does not guarantee admission.
