The top 35 best scores will be selected to go through a second application process which will consist of an interview. Students will be selected following the interview and offered a seat in the program. The PN Faculty reserves the right to interview additional qualified applications. If additional applications are interviewed the faculty will interview the next 10 qualified applicants in the order they are ranked on the alternate list. This process may continue, if the faculty deems it necessary until the top 24 students are selected.

A maximum of 24 students will be conditionally accepted into the program. All other qualified applicants will be placed in rank-order on the alternate list.

Applications are only good for one application period. If you apply, but are not accepted you must reapply. Admission to the program is not guaranteed.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION YOU WILL NEED IF YOU ARE ACCEPTED:

Interview and alternate notices will be sent out no later than December 4, 2015. Acceptance notifications will be made available after the interviews are conducted and scored.

Acceptance and completion of the nursing program does not assure eligibility to take the PN licensure exam. The Utah State Board of Nursing makes the final decision as to whether a license will be issued to practice nursing in Utah.

If you have questions regarding this, please contact the State Board of Nursing, 160 East 300 South, P.O. Box 146741, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-6741, Phone number 801-530-6628.
