The UNMC College of Nursing academic programs use active learning methods to draw you into the experience of learning and making the material your own. This is learning at its best and we look forward to partnering with you on this exciting journey.


These essential science and liberal arts courses are available from any accredited community college, 4-year college or university.

Clinical training  
You'll get learning lab/clinical instruction through the College's state-of-the-art clinical training facilities/simulators. You'll also do clinical rotations at area medical centers, hospitals and other health facilities. While faculty make every effort to notify you well in advance of your clinical schedules, things do sometimes change due to circumstances outside our control. Please plan some flexibility in your schedule to allow for unforeseen changes in your clinical rotation schedule. A student services representative can provide information about specific clinical sites for the campus you attend.

Submit your application through the Centralized Application Service for Nursing Programs. You may save and return to your application until you are ready to submit it.

You will self-enter all college coursework, including prerequisites and any courses taken for credit during high school, courses completed through placement exam and all courses in progress. After you submit your application, NursingCAS will add your references and transcripts to it as they are submitted. Monitor progress through your NursingCAS account and through your email.
