Accelerated BSN Program Admissions Process

While applying to nursing school may seem stressful, our ABSN counselors help make the admissions process as seamless as possible. Working exclusively with ABSN students, these counselors know the ins and outs of the program and are here to provide personalized support to anyone planning to submit an application.

1. Talk to an Admissions Counselor

Complete the online form to have someone from our admissions team contact you directly. During this initial conversation, the admissions counselor will go over some basic information and schedule your pre-admissions interview. 

2. Complete the Pre-Admissions Interview

The pre-admissions interview is an informal phone conversation that allows your admissions counselor to get to know you and what you’re looking for in a nursing education. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the program. This is an important step in the admissions process because we want to make sure our ABSN program is a good fit for you and vice versa. 

3. Start a Pre-Enrollment Plan

Your ABSN counselor will review your unofficial college transcripts and help you come up with a pre-enrollment plan that targets your preferred start date in the program.

4. Complete the Prerequisite Courses

Register for and complete the ABSN prerequisite courses within the specified requirements. You can complete these courses online through Grand Canyon University.

5. Apply to the Program

Once you’ve satisfied all of the admissions requirements, you can start putting together your online application, targeting a program start date in January, May or August. As part of the application process, you’ll also need to submit the following:

  • Official transcripts from each regionally-accredited institution attended
  • Official transcripts showing the successful completion of the prerequisites
  • HESI A2 entrance exam scores

Before submitting your application, be sure to go over everything with your ABSN counselor. After we’ve received your application, you can expect an admissions decision within a few weeks.
