It is an exciting time to pursue a career in nursing and we are happy that you considering studying at Marymount to prepare. Below you will find information on applying to our nursing programs.

Admission Requirements for Accelerated BSN Applicants

Answer

All applicants must have a cumulative college GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale to be considered for admission. High school GPA and SAT or ACT scores will only be considered for applicants with fewer than 30 credits.

In addition to the standard requirements for transfer applicants, applicants to the Accelerated BSN program must submit a personal essay, take the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) nursing pre-admission exam, and complete the prerequisite courses.

Students who either hold a current RN license or have received a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university with a GPA of 2.8 or higher may be exempted from the ATI-TEAS requirement. Find ATI-TEAS information and test dates on our ATI-TEAS information page.

**Please note** In order to be eligible for the accelerated program, International applicants must submit an official transcript evaluation of their international coursework. The evaluation must show that your degree is equivalent to a four-year degree from the US. No exceptions to this policy can be made.
