Attention Pre-Licensure Applicants
All applicants to UMSL's College of Nursing should be aware of the minimum admission criteria for the program(s)/option(s) for which they are applying. Please note that submission of an application does not guarantee admission. Admission is competitive, and is contingent on health as evidenced by physical examination and fulfillment of the health and immunization requirements in accord with respective deadlines.
Completion of any of the Pre-Licensure BSN Options does not guarantee eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. Applicants should be aware that license restrictions apply as outlined in the Missouri Nurse Practice Act and the Essential Abilities Requirements.
