BSN Application Instructions

Application Information

Applicants to any of the UNMC College of Nursing Bachelor’s programs complete an online application through the Centralized Application Service for Nursing Programs (NursingCAS) and provide supplemental information through the UNMC CON Supplemental application. NursingCAS partners with participating schools of nursing to provide an online application to students who wish to apply to that school's programs and processes applications and verifies transcripts on behalf of the schools.

Applications Open:

Before beginning your application, you are highly encouraged to read both the UNMC and NursingCAS application information as well as talk with a Student Services Coordinator to ensure you are ready to apply. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that all required documents (application, reference forms, personal statement, and all transcripts) are received as close to the published deadline as possible. All application materials become the sole property of UNMC College of Nursing.

General Information for the NursingCAS Application

The NursingCAS application will require you to self-enter all college coursework, attach a personal statement, provide the email addresses of two recommenders, and enter other demographic information. We strongly suggest that you begin working on your application as early as possible and submit no later than approximately four to five weeks before the published deadline. This will enable you to include any fall/spring course grades and will allow time for NursingCAS to verify transcripts and other submitted documents. Applications submitted by the published deadline will be given consideration. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
