What happens to students who are not admitted to the nursing program?
Students can reapply as many times as they want, there is no penalty. Kelsey Nelson, from Boise State Career Services, is available to meet with students that want to explore other health studies majors, and students can also meet with someone from AASC- they will advise on a broader spectrum. Advisors and students will create backup plans should students not get into the program. Below are a few alternative options for students who did not get admitted into the nursing program:
Lewis-Clark State College Nursing Program
We are happy to announce a very special opportunity between the School of Nursing at Boise State and the Nursing & Health Sciences Division of Lewis-Clark State College. With the permission of our applicants, we will forward the contact information to students who are qualified but not accepted to the School of Nursing to LCSC. LCSC nursing applications are submitted online at www.NursingCAS.org. Contact information is NOT sufficient for application. Interested students should follow up with LCSC for additional details at NHS@lcsc.edu.
Dual Enrollment in Associate Degree Nursing Program and Online RN-BS Completion Track
One option for students not admitted to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is to seek admission to an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. Boise State has agreements with all Idaho community colleges that allow ADN nursing students to dual enroll in the online RN-BS program at Boise State. This option allows students to work simultaneously toward an ADN and a bachelor of science nursing degree. Learn more about RN-BS Dual Enrollment.
Accelerated Degree Programs
An alternative path to complete a nursing degree is to complete a degree in another major, and then apply to an accelerated bachelor’s degree nursing program. Boise State does not offer this option, but a 12-month accelerated program is available at Idaho State University. View ISU Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program.
