Step 2: Advisement and Admission to the University


For academic advisement information, please call
(662) 329-7311.

Prospective students who plan to take non-nursing courses at other institutions should contact the program chair regarding transfer of credit prior to taking the courses. The Human Anatomy & Physiology and Microbiology courses must include labs. A minimum grade of "C" must be earned in all required courses for the ASN curriculum. Two failures (less than "C") in a required science course will disqualify a student from admission into the ASN Program.

Admission to the University

Students must apply for admission into the University. Students must meet admission requirements to the University before an offer of acceptance to the ASN program is made. This is done by completing an MUW Admission Form, submitting a completed Immunization Form and Health Examination Form and having all transcripts mailed to the Office of Admissions.

Step 3: Admission to the LPN/RN Advanced Placement Option

The application to the LPN/RN Advanced Placement Option is separate from the application to the University. Applicants must submit official transcripts of all colleges attended, ACT score verification, a current unencumbered MS license, and a letter from an employer documenting at least one year's work experience as an LPN to the program office, and ASN application by 5:00 pm on May 15th. Click on the links below for additional information concerning deadlines, and information concerning admission requirements and the curriculum.
