Effective Date Spring 2001
Brief Summary of ProposalThe purpose of the revision to the Direct Admission criteria for the College of Nursing is to expand the opportunity for increased numbers and categories of students to enter the College of Nursing directly through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Student groups included in this proposal include new high school graduates, new students with no prior college work who completed high school at least two years ago, transfers, post-baccalaureate, and all LPNs and RNs returning to school. Increased support services would be provided by the College for this student population including academic advising. This change would enhance the College's recruitment, retention and enrollment management initiatives. Direct admission criteria for each of the student groups are contained in the proposal. Direct admit students in the College of Nursing will be classified as "prenursing". Students not meeting direct admit criteria will be admitted to University College and will be classified as "intended nursing majors". "Intended nursing majors" would have the opportunity for direct admit from University College once certain criteria are achieved. Direct admission criteria from University College are contained in the proposal. Eligible "intended nursing majors" in University College and "prenursing" students in the College of Nursing will be considered for admission to the nursing major at the end of each Spring semester according to current admission procedures. This proposal does not change current admission criteria or procedures for the nursing major. Persons from University Admissions and University College Advisement Center have participated in the proposal development and support the changes.

Resource commentThis proposal would require additional personnel in the College of Nursing's Student Affairs office. Initially the College would be able to support a recruiter/advisor position for 16 hours per week with the goal that the position would eventually be full-time. This recruiter/advisor position would focus on the advisement services for direct entry pre-nursing students and outreach recruitment activities with regional high schools. Change part-time recruiter/advisor position to full-time.
