Selection and Acceptance Procedure (Point system)

  1. Applications are reviewed for required documentation by the VN Admissions Committee. Only those with complete files will be considered for admission.

  2. The number of spaces that can be admitted to the VN Program is limited by classroom and clinical spaces and by faculty availability. Therefore, a selection procedure is used to identify candidates who are the most academically prepared.

  3. Applicants with complete files will be evaluated for selection by a point system. Remember that a grade of a “C” or better must be obtained in all required courses:

    A. HESI Scores
    Cumulative score of 75% or higher is required
    75 % or higher in all areas = 3
    70 % or higher in all areas = 2
    60 % or higher in all areas = 1

    B. Required prerequisite science course BIOL 2404 Survey of Anatomy & Physiology
    A = 6 points
    B = 4 points
    C = 2 points

  4. Once all eligible applicants have been ranked, students will be admitted from the highest ranked score to the
    lowest, until all spots are filled. If there are more eligible candidates than there are spaces available, an alternate
    list will be developed. Should spaces become available prior to the first day of class, applicants will be notified.

  5. Applicants will be notified in writing of acceptance or non-acceptance via email on or about July 1 of each year.
