The 2015 Generic BSN Application is now available on the Nursing Department website: http://www.missouristate.edu/nursing/undergraduate/default.htm
There are a few changes to note with the new application:
- Per 2014/2015 Catalog requirements: You must now have completed or “in progress” 56 or more credit hours of general education coursework and Nursing prerequisite coursework by the end of the Spring semester you are applying. That means you may only apply to the program with no more than 3 credit hours of outstanding coursework (not including NUR 472: Research Methods and Scholarly Writing).
- We have updated our technical standards- which may be found on the last page of the application.
- There will be a $50 application fee that will be due at the time you turn in your application.
- Under the section “Relevant Experience” (a supplement to your resume) we suggest you obtain the following: Healthcare Experience, Community Service and Leadership Experience. Note that healthcare experience will count only as a paid opportunity having client/patient contact.
- New job shadow requirements and documentation form. The new form can be found on page 9 of the application. Experience should be in an acute care setting (hospital) with a Nurse working as an RN. The new form is required for all 2015 applicants.
Points will now be deducted from students’ overall scoring who submit an incomplete application packet on first attempt.
Application workshops will be made available during the Fall semester.
- No individual application review appointments will be made available. Please utilize the workshop for question asking. There will be a review period at the end of each workshop, so bring a rough draft of your application and it will be reviewed prior to submission.
In addition to the above changes, please note the following changes that will affect 2015 Applicants:
- Honors College Requirements: For honors college students who will be applying in 2015, the minimum GPA requirement to remain a provisional admission student has been raised to 3.60 CUM.
- ROTC Provisional Admission: In 2015, we have allowed one seat to be set aside for a student who is both ROTC and Nursing. They must meet all general requirements as well as possess a 3.60 or higher for their GPA The ROTC program will choose among the candidates who will meet the requirements and work with the Department of Nursing on their student selection.
- Prerequisite Passing Grade Change: Per the 2014/2015 Catalog, Nursing prerequisite coursework must be passed with a C or higher.
