Admission to this program track for the BSN degree is selective. Thirty-two to forty-five students are admitted for each fall and winter semester. Students may apply after completion of the first set of prerequisites. Application deadlines are January 20 and September 1. Late applications may be accepted if space becomes available. Application packets are available from the Office of Admissions, the Academic Advising and Career Center, or the Department of Nursing. If the student is not admitted and wants to be included in the next pool of applicants, the student must resubmit an updated application packet. Only complete packets are considered.
The Pre-Nursing Program courses are prerequisites for the University of Michigan-Flint/Hurley Medical Center Basic BSN Program.

A final grade of C+ (2.3) or better is necessary in all required nursing and elective courses (prefix NUR) to progress in the Nursing program.

A pre-entrance physical examination, immunizations, CPR certification, and health insurance will be required at the student’s expense.

Interruption of Program
Students who do not successfully complete NUR 220 cannot continue in the Nursing Program. To be considered for readmission, the student must reapply to the nursing program. Students who elect to withdraw from their program may experience a delay before reinstatement, due to enrollment limits. Students who remain enrolled without interruption in their program are given priority in assignment to clinical courses. Any student considering interruption of the program should discuss this with his/her academic advisor in advance.
Readmission to the Program
Students at the University of Michigan-Flint who are not enrolled for either a fall or winter semester must make application for readmission through the Office of Admissions and to the Student Affairs Committee of the Department of Nursing. Decisions on applications for readmission are dependent upon availability of space in clinical nursing courses and the student’s previous academic standing. The student may be required to make adjustments according to the curriculum in effect for the semester into which they are readmitted.
