Program Entrance Requirements and Application Instructions
Admission to the Nursing program is competitive. There are program entrance requirements that must be completed by the application deadline. Approximately 40 students will be accepted to the Nursing program each fall, based on clinical site availability.
Program Entrance Requirements
- Proof of graduation from high school or a high school equivalency diploma (formerly known as GED).
- Completion of Algebra, Biology and Chemistry per description below by the application deadline of January 11, 2021. Students may fulfill these requirements by completing high school courses (taken within five years post graduation i.e. if you graduated in 2016 or later you can use high school courses for fall 2021 entrance), college courses* or a combination of both. The most recent class grade will be used to fulfill the program entrance requirements. In addition, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 (85%) is required. The most recent transcript will be used to determine the cumulative GPA.
- THIS REQUIREMENT HAS BEEN WAIVED FOR FALL 2021 APPLICANTS DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC! TEAS Test taken within two years of the application date of January 11, 2021. The TEAS test can only be taken twice in a twelve-month period. A repeat attempt may not be earlier than 45 days. Test attempts at other testing sites will count as an attempt. Scores of second attempt prior to 45 days will not be accepted. FM requires a TEAS minimum score at the proficient level in order to be admitted into the program. If you do not meet the TEAS cut score, you must retake the entire TEAS test.
