FNP programs are highly competitive and all students admitted to the program will have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0. However, students not meeting this requirement may be admitted conditionally or on probation. After admission criteria is met, each applicant is reviewed holistically by the faculty admissions committee. Commitment to scholarship, leadership, and clinical inquiry are crucial components in a competitive application. Academic rigor, clinical experience, best fit with the program, and advanced specialty are also considered during the application review process.
