To: All prospective nursing students for the traditional nursing program (Please note this does not apply to RNs or those in the Bachelor's to BSN: Second Degree summer-start program)
From: Department of Nursing
The faculty of the Department of Nursing is glad that you are considering nursing at The College at Brockport. We wish you every success in your studies. Please review this letter carefully, as it contains important information.
Acceptance into the College is not the same as acceptance into the nursing major. Acceptance into the nursing major is very competitive and is not guaranteed by acceptance into the College. You will be considered a “Nursing Intent” until you have applied to and been accepted into the nursing major. This designation allows the College to better guide you in the areas of transfer credit evaluation, advisement, and registration.
Your first two years of coursework involve completion of general education requirements and nursing prerequisites. The application to the nursing major is due in January of the year you plan to enter the nursing program. The traditional nursing program begins in the fall semester only. Check the Department of Nursing website at www.brockport.edu/nursing for application instructions and the specific application deadline. Applications submitted after the due date and time are not accepted. Applicants are notified of acceptance or non-acceptance in March of the year they apply.
In order to be eligible for consideration for admission to the nursing major, applicants must.
See the Department of Nursing website (www.brockport.edu/nursing) for additional information.
Native Brockport students (those who have not been enrolled in any other college prior to entering Brockport):
Students with a previous baccalaureate degree:
Transfer students who are accepted by the College and take courses at Brockport prior to applying for nursing program admission:
Direct transfer students (those who are accepted by the College, but do not take courses at Brockport prior to applying for nursing program admission) must:
Students admitted to The College at Brockport under another major may not subsequently change their major to a nursing intent without a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 and Department of Nursing approval.
I have read this document and understand the requirements and criteria for consideration for admission to the nursing program.
