Nursing students who passed all full-time first-year ADN courses with a grade of “C” of better and who submit a letter of recommendation are eligible to apply to enroll in any courses noted in the academic catalog as “open to approved ADN students.” These students are eligible to apply for regular admission to the RN-BSN Program after successful completion of the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination).
