The NYIT Nursing program has its own specific review process. Admission into the nursing major is competitive. The number of students accepted depends upon available resources, class limits, prerequisite coursework requirements and college GPA. Students must meet the requirements for admission into New York Institute of Technology first before they can be considered for the nursing major.
A student admitted into the nursing major will be admitted as a Nursing Intent student and will be eligible to register under the nursing major once all conditions of their acceptance into the nursing major have been met. Please note admission into the nursing major does not guarantee acceptance into the nursing program. To gain admission to the nursing program, the Department of Nursing requires students to complete specific program requirements (i.e. a review by the Department of Nursing Academic Review Committee and successful completion of the NURS 102 course).
Please note: students who are admitted and are interested in beginning the Clinical Phase of the Nursing Program must request a separate and specific review again during the Fall semester to be considered for admission to the Pre-Clinical Phase/NURS 102 (the gateway course to the Clinical Phase of the Nursing Program) in the Spring semester. NURS 102 is the first nursing course taken before admission and progression into the Clinical Phase of the Nursing Program.
All applicants are required to submit the following supporting documentation. Student applicants who have already submitted the following supporting documentation to the NYIT, Admissions department within the last six months, DO NOT have to submit supporting documentation unless the student applicant has completed coursework elsewhere since their last nursing application submission.
In addition to general education requirements listed as 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester courses. Students who are missing prerequisite coursework must demonstrate they can successfully complete ALL required Pre-Clinical coursework listed as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th semester courses prior to the start of NURS 301, Junior Year- 5th semester (see Nursing Curriculum Map (pdf))./p>

All applications (irrespective of student status: NYIT Students, Nursing Majors or New Applicants) will be considered competitively.
All admission decisions are final. Applicants who are not accepted into the nursing major are welcomed to reapply in the next nursing review.
Due to specific college evaluation guidelines, the nursing department does evaluate transcripts prior to student's applying to the nursing program. All transcript evaluations are done exclusively thru the admissions department. The admissions department will determine whether or not courses attempted are applicable to the nursing curriculum. Student files with transcript evaluations pending approval/clearance of all transfer discrepancies by the admissions department will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed by the Department of Nursing Academic Review Committee. Students must submit their official transcripts by the stated deadline and all transcript evaluations must be completed to be considered for the nursing review. It is the student's responsibility to verify all required admission forms and supporting documents (personal essay, letters of recommendation, NYIT application, and official transcripts) are on file with the admissions department prior to the review.
Applicants to the School of Health Professions should be aware that certain legal issues and/or convictions may preclude student from being accepted by clerkships, internships and/or fieldwork and impact the student's ability to complete the required program courses and qualify for graduation, certification and/or licensure.
