Direct entry into the bachelor of science degree in nursing (BS) program is awarded to highly qualified incoming freshmen. Candidates should list nursing or “still deciding in nursing” as their intended major. A limited number of candidates may be invited to interview.
Benefits: Selection to the BS program is guaranteed, provided the student satisfies prerequisite course work in the first year at SIUE and maintains a 3.0 or higher prerequisite GPA. Pre-nursing course advisement will be conducted by School of Nursing advisors.
