Students will be admitted to the BSN traditional track from three student groups: first time freshmen, current Lee students who change their major to nursing, and transfer students. There is a separate application process for the School of Nursing; application to the School of Nursing will only be considered after the student has applied and been accepted to the University.
Pre-requisite courses do not have to be completed prior to admission to the nursing major.
Nursing majors will be admitted into one of three admission statuses: Full Acceptance, Provisional Acceptance and Pending Acceptance. The status of admission is based on space and on the competitiveness of the applicant pool.
Factors influencing admission status into the nursing major include High school and college courses completed, cumulative GPA, ACT or SAT scores, Test of Essential Academic Skills-V (TEAS-V) entrance exam score, essay, and academic recommendations. [TEAS-V exemption: incoming students with ACT score of 25 and above; or SAT Reading/Math score of 1150 and above (writing score is not included).]
Full Acceptance into the School of Nursing assures the student that they may remain in the major provided they maintain progression requirements.
Provisional Acceptance into the School of Nursing allows the student to be advised by the School of Nursing and to follow the nursing major plan of study for the first year (or first two semesters). At the end of the first year at the Provisional status, the applicant will be reconsidered for Full Acceptance status, but should be aware that meeting requirements at the minimum does not guarantee Full Acceptance status.
Pending Acceptance is given to students because the application was not competitive within the applicant pool. These students will only be allowed into beginning nursing courses if there is space after the Full and Provisional accepted students have been registered.
If Provisional and Pending status students do not progress to the level of Full Acceptance at the end of the first year (or first two semesters), they will not be permitted to apply again to the nursing major and must select a different major.
