Selection Process and Procedures
This is the 2013-2014 application information. Updated information is forthcoming; however, the dates listed here are correct.
After the admissions requirement criteria are met, the selection process for accepting students into the program begins.
If notified by the Admissions Office, eligible applicants shall report for the PSB Nursing School Aptitude Examinations-RN (Fee is $20.00). Health forms will be provided.
Minumum weighted score of 45 is required.
Notifications will be mailed to those eligible for a group information session. This session will be scheduled with the nursing advisor, nursing director, and assistant to the nursing director.
Final Selection: In order to be considered for admission, each student must meet the stated deadlines and admission requirements. The applicant must have three favorable references (Likert scale average or higher; recommended without reservation), up-to-date immunizations and a completed medical form by his/her primary health care provider or MD. As part of the completed medical forms, the provider must indicate the applicant has “physical and emotional health”...as specified in the essential functions that have been articulated for the AD Nursing program. If these requirements are satisfied, then the applicant will be selected on the basis of earned points determined by 1) PSB-RN graph, 2) GPA, and 3) success in previous (high school or college) education. Written notification of acceptance will be mailed by the admitting college and the AD Nursing Director.
