This video may answer many questions you have about admission to the program.
Entrance into the program is selective and is based on academic ability and aptitude for a career as a nurse. Acceptance is completed in conjunction with admission to Carroll. For more information, contact Nancy Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-386-8231.
An entrance examination is required. Testing will be in the Testing Center and will begin in fall 2018. Students MUST complete the examination by February 15, 2019.

The admission process awards points for completing the Nursing Application and meeting the above criteria. Students with the highest point totals are accepted conditionally into the clinical portion of the program.
Courses taken at another college should be shared with the Nursing program so that points may be assessed. A copy of your current course schedule is necessary.
Transfer courses with grades are included and are assigned quality points based on the letter grade. Transfer credit(s) earned without a letter grade (CLEP, AP, military evaluation, Challenge examination) are not assigned quality points or calculated in the GPA.
Initially accepted students who decline acceptance or fail to meet their course requirements result in the next eligible student, with the highest point score, being accepted into the program.
After being accepted for admission, you must satisfy the following prior to Aug. 15 for Fall admission. Additional information is provided after being accepted.
The Nursing Program Director reserves the right to refuse admission to the program for failure to satisfy the above requirements.
You must provide your own transportation to clinical sites during each nursing course.
