BSN Program Admissions
BSN Program Admission Policies & Procedures (Pre Health-Fall 2020 and forward, Continuing Pre-Nursing- Prior to Fall 2020, Transfer Students, Second Bachelor Students)
Fresno State's BSN program is on impacted status (the number of applications received is greater than the number of vacancies for the program). Therefore, admission into the nursing major is very competitive; there is no waiting list. Applicants must reapply each time and compete with the entire applicant pool if not selected. A 3.75 Pre-Requisite GPA is the historical competitive GPA for the program. Please take this into consideration when applying.
Due to COVID-19 and the changes to instruction and grading at Fresno State for the Spring 2020 semester the School of Nursing has made the following decisions for Spring 2020-Spring 2022 semesters in relation to Nursing admissions policies.
1. Credit/No Credit grading will be allowed for all Pre-Requisite courses taken only in the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020 semesters.
2. Science classes (Chemistry, Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology 1&2) changed to Online Versions for Spring 2020 through Spring 2022 will be accepted for Admission purposes.
3. Starting again in Spring 2021 and forward all Pre-Requisite courses must be letter grades and CR/NC will not be accepted except for classes taken in Spring 2020, Summer 2020 and Fall 2020.
