Once an application is complete and the above admission documents are submitted, the Office of Adult Enrollment will review for a general university admission decision first. A favorable general university admission decision provides the opportunity for students to complete any outstanding prerequisite courses at La Salle. Once a favorable general university admission is made and prerequisite courses are completed, the process of a formal decision for the actual nursing courses will begin. Prior to formal acceptance into the nursing major, all students must be interviewed by the Assistant Director of the Evening/Weekend program who will then present each student’s academic file for review by the undergraduate Nursing Program’s Admissions and Academic Standards Committee. This review does not require a separate application for admission. However, formal acceptance into the clinical courses of the major through this review is required. This review consists of both academic and non-academic requirements, including criteria such as (but not limited to) the student’s overall GPA, science GPA, criminal background and health history. A cleared child abuse check, a cleared criminal record check from the state of Pennsylvania and primary residence state, and a cleared FBI nationwide fingerprint check must be current (i.e., within 6 months of starting the nursing major courses).
