Transfer Nursing Student Information

Because entrance into the BSN program at NNU requires an additional application and process with its own admission requirements in addition to NNU’s admission process, it is best to visit with your admission counselor first.

In the meantime, you can find a helpful step by step process of how to apply for the BSN program below.

If you have any questions please contact Christian at 208.467.8647, by email transfer@nnu.edu or feel free to contact the nursing department at 208.467.8650.



Step One

Submit your application for admission to NNU along with your unofficial college transcripts (official transcripts will eventually be required, but unofficial transcripts can be used in the admission acceptance evaluation process).

If you meet NNU’s admission requirements, you will receive your notice of admission acceptance.

Step Two

Determine if you meet the BSN program’s prerequisites.

  • The Nursing department will determine whether your prior credits meet their requirements and will then advise you on next steps or needed coursework if necessary.
  • Schedule a meeting with your Nursing Advisor to craft a personalized plan of study.

Once you have scheduled a meeting with your Nursing Advisor, submit your BSN Application.

Continue to work on any missing admission materials and processes with your admission counselor.

Step Three

Watch for communication from the Nursing department on the status of your application and your next steps. If you are granted admission into the BSN program, those next steps include:

  • Submission of official transcripts to admissions@nnu.edu
  • Completing a background check
  • Submitting all clinical compliance paperwork
  • Attending the White Coat Ceremony & New Student Orientation

Watch for important details from your admission counselor on enrollment processes and activities.

If you did not meet requirements or deadlines for the BSN cohort you desired, please continue working with both Admissions and the Nursing department on finding a pathway to that goal in another cohort.

Also, please know that you may still enroll at NNU to take any prerequisite or general education courses you may need, even if you did not meet the deadlines or requirements for a particular BSN cohort. The Nursing department can provide guidance and advising with this process, so be sure to keep in touch with them.
