BSNA Admissions Process

1. Submit your application through the TESU Online App.

A complete application must include the following supporting documents:

  1. a current resume
  2. a personal statement
  3. contact information for two references (academic and/or professional)
  4. official ATI TEAS Exam Score Report
  5. all official transcripts

Make sure to complete your application by the application deadline:

  • May cohorts: February 1st
  • September cohorts: June 1st
2. Application Review Appointment

Once your application materials and transcripts have been reviewed, our Program Advisor will contact you to discuss your next steps. You may need to complete a few requirements or you may be ready to interview with the Admissions Committee.

3. Admissions Committee Review and Interview

Once your application is complete, the Admissions Committee will review your file. If you meet the requirements of the Accelerated BSN Program, you will be invited to interview with the Admissions Committee. Please note: a completed application does not guarantee you an interview invitation. Additionally, an interview does not guarantee you admission into the program.

Applications are reviewed and interviews are scheduled all year. Acceptance into a program cohort is on a first come, first serve basis. Applicants who are accepted into the program after the maximum number of cohort seats has been filled will be invited to join the next program cohort.

Additional Requirements
  • Proficiency in using a computer, browsing the Internet, and sending and receiving email (including attachments)
  • For students of foreign universities, all transcripts must be evaluated by an approved agency. An official course-by-course evaluation must be submitted with your application.
  • If the applicant has taken English I and English II at a regionally accredited institution, it is at the discretion of the School of Nursing to require the TOEFL Exam. The W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing has the discretion to require an applicant to take the TOEFL Exam regardless of the student’s native language if there is a concern about the student’s ability to communicate in English.
  • After acceptance into the program, a criminal background check, drug screen, health and immunization verification, malpractice and health insurance, and CPR certification are required.
