GENERAL POLICIES
The Faculty of the School of Nursing seeks to admit those candidates who are best qualified to meet the academic requirements of the nursing program, and who, by reason of academic potential, purpose and maturity, show promise of successful completion of the program.
Admission is selective and competitive.
Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible for either full or part-time study. Deadlines allow the school to process the completed applications* and register the new students properly.
*A completed application includes ALL documents/credentials
required of the applicant.
Personal interviews are not required as part of the admission process. Information Sessions are held to acquaint applicants with the program of study and to clarify the admissions process. Credit Evaluation Workshops provide review of credits for transfer. The Admissions Committee may request that the applicant clarify information presented to the School of Nursing before an admission decision is made.
Candidates are promptly notified by mail of action taken by the School of Nursing Admissions Committee. Persons who are accepted into the program must submit a non-refundable acceptance fee.
It is NOT necessary to apply separately to Union County College. All applications are made directly to the JFK Snyder School of Nursing. Through a joint admission policy, applicants accepted for admission to the JFK Snyder School of Nursing are also accepted by Union County College.
Applications remain active for two semesters, the semester applied for and the next semester.
It is imperative that the applicant apply to the School of Nursing before attempting any courses required by the Program.
