Coursework taken at foreign institutions must be evaluated for U.S. institutional equivalence by an approved National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) organization such as one of the services listed below.

It is the applicant's responsibility to have this coursework evaluated. An official course-by-course evaluation with a cumulative grade point average must be sent directly from the evaluation service.
Submit additional supplemental items (R.N. license & CV) directly to NursingCAS.
Once the NursingCAS application is completed, an applicant needs to complete the supplemental NSU Application online. If an applicant is missing the 3 P's (advanced pathophysiology, advanced pharmacology, or advanced health assessment) from their completed master’s degree they will be required to submit a non-degree seeking application. Non-degree seeking applicants will have an opportunity to enroll in the 3 P’s. Upon completion of these courses an applicant will need to submit an application for the postgraduate certificate program and will then be enrolled in their specified program track.
Once all applications and documents have been received the application will be processed and reviewed.
The deadline to complete and submit the NursingCAS
and supplemental NSU applications
for Fall admission will be August 1 and for Winter admission the deadline is December 9. The Office of Admissions works on a rolling basis. Applications are accepted year-round.
