Admission Requirements

Is there an admission test requirement?

Yes, the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is required. The minimum TEAS requirements have changed for cohorts starting after July 2012:

  • TEAS minimum required overall score: 58.7%
  • TEAS may not be taken more than 3 times in a calendar year
  • No less than 4-week intervals between TEAS tests
  • Version V is required

Are letters of recommendation required?

No. Letters of recommendation are not required and are not accepted.  Letters of recommendations that are submitted with an application are not kept or stored by the College of Nursing.

Do you give preference to candidates who have nursing experience or are currently working in the health field?

No, the College does not require applicants to have nursing experience, nor do we award credit for prior work experience.

What is the minimum GPA required for admission to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Roseman?

Applicants must have a minimum 2.75 on a 4.0 scale for both their Math & Science prerequisites GPA as well as their cumulative GPA. GPA calculations are based on the BSN program requirements. All prerequisite coursework must be completed with a “C” or better grade to be accepted for transfer.  Please note that meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission into the program.

Does the program base admission entirely on GPA?

Admission is based on the candidate’s academic achievement score, TEAS score, and, if granted, a writing sample and the average interview score.  Additional information on the scoring system of admissions can be found in the Admissions Application and Process section of the website.

Must I have all the prerequisite courses completed before I apply?

No, but a plan must be in place to complete all requirements prior to entering the program. All prerequisites, except the U.S. and Nevada Constitution requirement must be completed and documented prior to the start of classes. Conditional Enrollments may be granted in extenuating circumstances to allow a student to complete a prerequisite while in the program.

How do I know if the prerequisites offered at my college will satisfy Roseman’s requirements?

Questions regarding the transferability of prerequisite coursework should be emailed to the College of Nursing Admissions & Enrollment Office.  Please include the course name, number of semester/quarter credits and catalog description.

Unofficial transcripts may be emailed to the College of Nursing Admissions & Enrollment Office or faxed to 702-968-5279 (Henderson campus) or 801-878-1303 (South Jordan campus).  Review of transcripts may take between 7-10 business days.  During the height of admissions periods, the review may take up to 14 business days to complete.

I finished my prerequisites over seven years ago. Will they be accepted?

Yes, however it is recommended that prerequisites are completed within the past 7 years.  Regardless of when the course was completed, the course must be documented by an official transcript from that institution. Transfer notations on another institution’s transcripts will not be accepted in lieu of an official transcript from which the course was taken.  The College of Nursing may request a course description or syllabus for coursework completed more than 7 years ago to determine transferability.

I have taken a course twice in order to improve my grade. Which grade will you use to transfer?

When a course is retaken, the second attempt or the highest grade earned will be utilized for transfer credit and/or grade point average calculation.

Does the BSN program accept credit-by-examination coursework?

Proficiency credit awarded through Credit-by-Examination will be considered for transfer. Students may have Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES subject Standardized Tests (DSST) or International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations scores evaluated by Roseman for the awarding of proficiency credit by submitting official score reports to the Nursing Admissions and Enrollment Office.  Credit-by-examinations to satisfy prerequisite coursework must meet the applicable minimum passing score.  Upon determining the passing score and equivalency of the exam to a prerequisite course, 3 credits and the respective grade will be awarded.  Credit-by-examinations will not be accepted for any science prerequisite.

What are the requirements for clinical rotations?

Upon receipt of a seating deposit, the Nursing Admissions and Enrollment Office will mail a packet that includes clinical rotation requirements and other information regarding enrollment.  Please contact the Director of Clinical Resources for additional information on clinical requirements.

Is health insurance required? Where can I go to learn about the Student Health Policy?

Yes, health insurance coverage is required of all students. If you do not have health insurance, you must enroll and register in the Student Health Policy offered through the University. You may also contact the Student Services Office for additional information.

Does the College of Nursing conduct background checks? If I had a previous violation, will it affect my chances at licensure?

To comply with requirements of clinical affiliates, the College of Nursing requires background checks to be conducted prior to clinical rotations. Based on the offense, the clinical agencies may not allow a student to practice in their facilities, which will have an adverse impact on the ability to successfully complete the requirements for the BSN degree.

If you have been charged, arrested or convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, contact the Nevada State Board of Nursing or Utah State Board of Nursing for information regarding licensure.

Application Process, Notification, Interviews, Final Notice

Can I apply online?

All applicants will need to apply to the program through Nursing CAS. Nursing CAS is a centralized application system for students who are applying to nursing school. Students will need to set up an account at www.nursingcas.org. For additional assistance with the application process, you can contact the Nursing Admissions office.

When is the deadline to apply?

Applications are accepted from July 1st through May 1st for classes starting in August.  Please note that due to rolling admissions, classes may be full prior to the published application deadline. It is recommended to apply early.

I applied to Roseman last year or the year before. Do I need to resubmit a new application?

Yes, the College of Nursing requires that a new application is submitted each year and the applicant must follow the new procedures in place. This includes having updated official transcripts sent to the College of Nursing regardless of whether or not additional coursework has been completed since the last application.  Official transcripts must be dated within the first year.

Is there an advantage to applying early?

Candidates who apply early have an opportunity to take additional coursework in the event that some of the courses were not transferable. In addition, candidates who apply early and meet all other minimum admission requirements have the opportunity to be interviewed earlier in the admissions process.  The College of Nursing employs a rolling admissions process, therefore admissions decisions may be made as early as a week after the first interview session.

How will I know if my application has been received and is complete?

Upon receipt of payment for your application and supplemental fee, applicants will receive an email stating their application has been received. The application will be reviewed and processed for next steps. Applicants will receive email communication for all necessary steps in the admissions process.

When will I know if I will get an interview?

There is approximately 4-5 interview sessions for each cohort.  Interviews for the August class are generally held from February through June.  Please note that the number of interview sessions and interview dates may change depending on the current applicant pool at that time.

Interviews will continue until the classes are filled. Eligibility for an interview is determined by the applicant’s prerequisite GPA, TEAS test results and meeting minimum admissions requirements at the time of application, in relation to the applicant pool.

When and how will I be notified of my final admission status?

The Admissions Office will notify all candidates of their final admission status via email at which time an Admissions packet will be also be emailed to the student if admitted.

August Classes will begin receiving notifications beginning in March.

I’m making changes to my contact information. How do I notify you?

Please send an email, fax or letter to the College of Nursing Admissions Office.  The written notice must include the applicant’s full name, a date of birth and new information.

BSN Program

How long is the BSN program?

Roseman’s BSN program is 18 months and is full-time. The didactic component of the program is generally conducted Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm. Lab components of the curriculum may be held after 3pm depending on the scheduling of students.  The clinical portion of the curriculum varies depending on the course and the facility.

Do you require a minimum passing score on tests while in the program?

Yes. We require all students to pass each assessment with a 90% or better score. This score includes a group score. If a student does not pass an assessment the first time, they are given a chance to remediate.

What is the block curriculum? Do we have any breaks?

The block curriculum allows students to take one course at a time, unlike traditional semester or quarter systems. The BSN program is a continuous program with limited breaks in the winter and summer.

How long does each block last?

Blocks vary in duration. Some blocks may last two (2) weeks, while others may span nine (9), depending on the amount of content and whether or not it includes a clinical component.

Do the students choose where they will go on clinical rotations?

No. The schedule is determined in advance by the Director of Clinical Resources or Clinical Coordinator. However, during the Senior Practicum, students are given a choice, depending on the availability of sites, as to what field of nursing they would like to do their practicum. Clinical sites are dependent on the availability of a preceptor and available clinical hours. Please email the Director of Clinical Resources for additional information on clinical rotations.
