Application to the Nursing Program

All applicants to the program must first apply for admission to the College. After being admitted to the College, applicants apply to the Department of Nursing for admission to the program.

Applicants must have completed a minimum of 60 credits before being admitted to the Nursing program. Transfer students should submit a copy of their evaluation of transfer credits from the Admissions Office. Second-degree students must file a Second Degree Area of Concentration form in the Office of Academic Standards and Evaluation, Shuster Hall 280.

Generic students planning to enroll in NUR courses in the fall semester of their junior year must complete and submit an application to the Department of Nursing by March 15 of the previous spring semester.

Registered nurses may apply at any time during the academic year. Applications are available in the Department of Nursing Office (T-3 Building, Room 201) during College business hours and at the Department's website at www.lehman.edu/deannss/nursing. Applicants must also submit official transcripts of all previous college work and a copy of the Transfer Credit Evaluation form if they are transfer students. All required prerequisite science and foundation courses must be completed prior to admission to the program. Students who have been dropped from another Nursing program for any reason are not admissible to the Nursing program at Lehman unless the student has subsequently passed the NCLEX exam and become a registered nurse.
