Admission Requirements

To be admitted into the nursing program, a student must be a registered nurse with a current license to practice in the United States. The student must complete the regular university admissions process. A student who does not complete the admissions process prior to registration can enroll as a transient student for one semester by presenting the R.N. license at registration. Sixty days prior to enrollment, the student is required to apply for a certified background review at his or her own expense, by a provider designated by Loyola University New Orleans, with results provided to Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing, Attention: Lisa Williams. Information on this process will be provided upon acceptance of an admission offer.

Program Requirements

A minimum of 120 semester credit hours is required for the B.S.N. degree. No lower division nursing courses are taught at Loyola. Credit for lower division nursing (i.e., adult health, parent-child health, mental health) is awarded by validation of transfer credit for associate degree graduates or validation of advanced placement credit for diploma nursing school graduates. The last 30 credit hours must be completed at Loyola University New Orleans.
