A waiting list is kept as described above as well as the student’s option to re-apply
in a following admission period.
However, to avoid this situation, the school of nursing recommends that all students,
regardless of GPA and resume factors, apply at more than one nursing program or school
to increase their chances of acceptance.
Due to a shortage of space in nursing schools nationwide compared to the number of
interested students, we encourage everyone to have a backup plan.
At MSU, we want to support your academic goals and desire to become a nurse. You're
encouraged to meet with other programs and learn how their admissions policies and
prerequisite course work may differ from that at MSU.
An academic advisor in the McQueary College of Health and Human Services Advisement Center is happy to discuss these options with you and advise you on how to meet requirements
for other programs while studying at MSU.
