Pre-Licensure Direct Admission to Nursing

Note: Below is effective for the fall 2017 academic year.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program at Lourdes has a competitive admission process. However, in recognition of the fact that many students are capable of maintaining a solid GPA, Lourdes is now permitting new students to be directly admitted to the Nursing Major providing they achieve a minimum 3.0 GPA requirement in high school and have scored at least a 22 on their ACT or an 1120 combined on the SAT. These Direct Admission nursing students should then maintain their 3.0 minimum grade point for the three semesters of pre-nursing requisite courses.

If a Direct Admission student drops their GPA to 2.5-2.99 for a semester, the student will be placed on probationary status where if they can successfully raise their GPA back to the 3.0 the following semester, they will retain their Direct Admission status. Students may consult the University catalog for further specific information on the Direct Admission criteria.

Pre-Nursing Major Status

If a high school student’s GPA does not meet this requirement, the individual is qualified for admittance as a Pre-Nursing Major. After completing the first semester of undergraduate coursework at Lourdes University, if the student achieves a 3.0 GPA, he or she can gain Direct Admission status to the nursing major at that time.

Strong candidates not qualifying for Direct Admission status and desiring admission to the Nursing major will typically meet and / or exceed the criteria below. Competitive admission requirements apply in these cases. Please note that meeting the following criteria will make a student a strong candidate, but does not guarantee admission to the program:

  • 2.5 or higher GPA (on a weighted 4.0 scale) AND
  • 22 or higher ACT score, including at least a 20 on the math and science subsections (equivalent SAT scores are also accepted)

Because the major is competitive in nature with limited clinical space for juniors and seniors, academic advisors work with Pre-Nursing Majors to assist them in accomplishing their goal and if necessary, identifying an alternative major without lengthening their time to graduation.
