How many are admitted to each class?
The number of students admitted to each class is a decision made by the Dean, with consideration given to faculty numbers, availability of clinical sites, the severity of the nursing shortage, and other factors.
How do I apply for admission?
Application deadlines are February 1 and July 1 each year.
The application for admission to the undergraduate nursing program is completed online. Most of the application consists of simple questions regarding your contact information and academic background. These answers should be written in advance and ready to be copied and pasted into the application. To access the online application, go to http://nursing.und.edu/application
What if I don't have all the pre-requisites completed?
Students are not considered a qualified applicant until all prerequisites listed under pre-nursing curriculum semesters 1, 2, and 3 are completed with grade "C" or better. If a student is admitted, then the pre-nursing curriculum semester 4 courses must be completed with grade "C" or better. Receiving a grade of less than a “C” in any required pre-nursing course/s or having a GPA lower than 2.75 will result in the loss of placement in the nursing program.
Who is my advisor?
You may find out who your advisor is by logging into Campus Connection. You may also call the Nursing Office of Student Services at 701.777.4174.
How do I change my major?
To change your major to pre-nursing, make an appointment with a pre-nursing advisor by scheduling an academic advising appointment online using Starfish or stop to the Nursing Office of Student Services (Nursing building, room 205) and see the walk-in advisor.
What is the deadline to apply for admission to Nursing?
July 1 and February 1 each year
Tell me about nursing - what are the options with this major?
UND offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, as well as various Graduate tracks and degrees, so the sky is the limit! BSN level graduates are employed in community based nursing (home health, hospice, school nurse, public health nurse, mental health nurse) and hospital nursing (pediatrics, obstetrics, labor and delivery, intensive care, emergency room, cardiac care, surgery, general medical, psychiatric, and oncology, to name a few). This is a degree which offers many choices of work settings and patient populations. Nursing is also a "hands on" major, with laboratory, clinical simulation, and clinical experiences incorporated into the program, in addition to the theory content.
How will my credits from other schools transfer in?
Students transferring into UND in Nursing should work closely with an advisor at the Nursing program to have their transfer credits evaluated. While many transfer courses from area schools have already been evaluated, making transfer fairly seamless, others may require the student to submit a syllabus of the transfer course for evaluation.
How much does it cost?
Cost per credit for all categories of students is available on the Student Account Services web site
Are there extra costs for the nursing program?
Yes. Program fees of $500 per full time student per semester are assessed once a student is admitted to the undergraduate program. Additionally, there are some costs associated with equipment, uniforms, and training (i.e. CPR) to be considered. A complete cost sheet is available from the Nursing Office of Student Services (Nursing 205, Nursing Building) or http://nursing.und.edu/programs/bsn-on-campus/program-cost.cfm
What scholarships are available?
Pre-nursing students should consult the UND Financial Aid web pages for scholarship information as most nursing scholarships are restricted to students admitted to a program: http://www.und.edu/dept/finaid/ The UND College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines offers various scholarships to nursing students. Applications are accepted each spring semester. More specific information can be found here: http://nursing.und.edu/student-services/scholarship-info.cfm A search on the web for nursing undergraduate scholarships will also yield many results.
What if you want to move to another state after you are graduated and licensed - do you have to take your licensure exam over again?
No. Once licensed as an RN, that license is transferrable from state to state. No retesting is required, only paperwork to transfer one's license from one state to another.
How do I register?
Course registration typically occurs through the CampusConnection online system. Please see this web site for complete information. http://www.und.edu/dept/registrar/campusconnection/index.htm
What do I do if a course is full?
First of all, you should normally contact that department to see if they are making any exceptions, or granting any overrides. Also check the Campus Connection system to see if the course has a waitlist option, and if so, get on a waiting list. If it is a course that you critically need in order to progress, also inform your advisor. He/she may be able to help or make an alternative suggestion.
What if I have a hold on my record?
If this is an advisor hold, then you need to see your advisor. If it is another type of hold, then you will need to go to the appropriate office, i.e. Student Account Services.
