One of only two programs like this in the state, this program is open to eligible high school students interested in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. These eligible students enter the upper-division BSN program after meeting prerequisite and general education requirements, excluding QCP 410. And are not required to apply for admission to the upper-division through that competitive process.
To be considered for admission, incoming students must meet all of the following:
- Graduated from high school within 12 months prior to enrollment at Queens.
- Minimum unweighted core high school GPA of 3.5 (no rounding).
- Must meet current course requirements of the pre-nursing courses plan in 4 semesters. All coursework must be completed at Queens.
Once admitted, the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 while at Queens. Students who do not meet progression requirements will be transferred to traditional pre-nursing, may continue with pre-nursing coursework, and are eligible to apply for admission to the upper-division through the competitive application process.
Priority Deadline for the Direct Admit program – November 15
If you are interested and eligible for this program, make sure you select “Nursing” as your intended major when completing your Queens application.
