How to Apply

Admission to the RN-BSN program takes places on a rolling basis.  Thus, students can be admitted throughout the academic year.  However,  It is important to start the application process early in the admissions cycle to ensure adequate amount of time to receive, review and complete all of the paperwork.  Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. 

How to Apply 

There are two separate applications that must be completed.  It is up to the student to ensure that the proper materials have been turned in for each application to the appropriate office.

1) An application to UNCP as a degree-seeking student.
  • To apply to the RN-BSN program, an application must first be submitted to UNCP.  To apply, click here:

  • You will need to ensure that the Office of Admissions has your application fee, official transcripts, test scores, and any other required items for your application to the university to be completed.  Your RN-BSN application will not be processed until you have received acceptance to the university.

After being accepted into the university, students may begin to take pre-requisite courses.  Once a student has 15 or less credits of pre-requisite coursework remaining, he or she may then apply to the RN-BSN Program by following the steps below.

2) An application to the RN-BSN Program.
  • You must fill out the separate RN-BSN application that is linked at the top of this page.
  • Print copies of your college transcripts and include them with your application (unofficial copies are acceptable).
  • After printing and filling out the application, please send a copy of your transcripts and the application to:
