Application Requirements

Admission to the nursing program is competitive. Each year, there are many students majoring in pre-nursing who meet the requirements to submit an application. 80 students are admitted per cohort. Cohorts begin in fall and spring semesters.

  • Applicants to the nursing program must earn a grade of C or above in all pre-nursing courses and have a cumulative college GPA of 2.5 or above in order for their nursing application to be considered by the School of Nursing for admission.
  • Pre-nursing courses may be taken at Boise State University or eligible courses may be transferred to Boise State from other schools. Some pre-nursing courses may be in progress when a student applies to the nursing program, but most pre-nursing courses must be completed before applying.
  • Preference is given to students currently enrolled at Boise State and Idaho residents.
