Requirements for Admission to the BSN Program
Graduation from high school is a minimum requirement for admission to American National University for those students enrolling in the certificate, diploma, associates, or bachelor’s programs. Those who have completed high school in a homeschool setting or have satisfied graduation requirements through the General Educational Development (GED) Test or a state authorized examination are also eligible for admission.
Applicants who wish to be considered for the BSN program must comply to the following information:
- Submit all college and high school/GED transcripts for academic review. A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required. However, preference will be given to applicants with GPA of 3.0 or higher.
- Credits from other institutions will be evaluated for transfer on a course-by-course basis. Due to the unique nature of nursing programs, it may not be appropriate to transfer nursing core courses.
- Students, with prior college experience, who do not have prior credits for transfer, will be evaluated on a cumulative GPA.
- Students with no prior college experience will be evaluated on their cumulative high school GPA or GED score of 500 or higher.
- Submit an updated resume (Preference may be given to applicants who supply proof of 1 year of experience in a health care field within the last 3 years or hold an active certification or license)
- Complete the National League for Nursing Pre-Admission Examination (NLN PAX).
