Admissions for Northeastern’s Accelerated and Online Nursing Programs
While our admissions criteria vary by each specific program, we seek applicants who possess the dedication and academic potential necessary to succeed in our nursing school.
The first step to starting any of our nursing programs is to speak with someone on our admissions team.
From there, we will assign you a dedicated admissions counselor who will answer all of your questions and support you throughout the application and admissions processes. You won’t have to figure it out alone.
During the first meeting with your counselor, they’ll ask you about your reasons for wanting to become a nurse, review your academic transcript(s) and discuss the eligibility requirements for our nursing programs.
Your admissions counselor will help you:
- Assess your education goals and determine your enrollment eligibility.
- Develop a plan for you to complete prerequisites and any other outstanding admissions requirements, with your preferred start date in mind.
- Submit the most competitive application possible to our School of Nursing.
