Early Admission to the Undergraduate Nursing Program
Normally, students are admitted to the North Park University nursing program only after several semesters of study at North Park. However, early admission prior to beginning studies is available for high-ability traditional first-year students according to the following guidelines:
- An ACT score of 29 or higher, or an SAT score of 1280 or higher
- Unweighted high school GPA of 3.25 or higher
- Maintenance of a minimum GPA of 2.75 in courses taken at North Park by the time you formally start the nursing program. (A GPA below 2.75 will void your early-admission status.)
If you think you are qualified, use this contact form to let us know. We will begin working with you to evaluate your eligibility. This option is for first-year students only (not transfer applicants).
- Streamline your admission into formal study in the nursing program at the start of the third year of classes.
- Work with a Faculty Mentor during the first two years of studies in the area of your intended specialty.
- Participate in clinical-enrichment opportunities during your first two years in the area of intended interest or specialty.
- Be known as a Nursing Scholar during your studies at North Park University.
