Master’s Program Admissions
The GSN has rolling admissions: applications are considered as soon as they are complete. Once an application is reviewed, an interview will be scheduled with qualified applicants.
The completed application and interview evaluation is then reviewed by the Academic Standards and Admissions Committee. Applicants are reviewed individually on the basis of previous academic achievement, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, professional experience and personal attributes. Each application is reviewed to determine whether prerequisites have been met for acceptance into the Master of Science program. Admission criteria vary slightly for the different master’s programs as described in the following sections.
Graduate Entry Pathway for individuals with a baccalaureate degree in a field other than nursing, leading first to registered nurse licensure and then to advanced nursing specialties;
Pre-master’s Pathway for registered nurses with a baccalaureate degree in a field other than nursing;
Traditional Master’s Pathway for registered nurses with a baccalaureate degree in nursing;
Post-master’s Certificate program for registered nurses with a master’s degree in nursing.
