Direct Admit Nursing Programs

While the majority of college and universities require that undergraduates enroll in two years of lower division coursework before applying to a nursing major, there are several programs offering direct admission to highly qualified prospective freshman (during their senior year of high school). If awarded entry, these students are guaranteed a spot in the institution's nursing major; and provided they meet course requirements, can be assured that they will graduate with a nursing degree.

Below is a comprehensive list of selective colleges and universities offering direct admit nursing programs. Please click the links below to explore each program's offerings and admission criteria.
