Only 18 students are selected each year. Admission is based on GPA, entrance testing, and patterns of grades earned in prerequisite coursework. The strongest candidates for our program are those who complete courses on the first attempt with better than average grades. All prerequisite coursework must be completed prior to the start of program.
Students with petitions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee admission to the program.
Alternates are not notified of their ranking.
Notification of Admission Status
Applicants will be notified by the official LCSC email system (LCMail) of their PN program admission status and sent a reply form.
Applicants provisionally admitted to the program and those on the Alternate List must return a Reply Form indicating their intention to attend. If not received by the deadline noted on the Reply Form, the applicant’s name will be removed from the admission list. Admission is finalized once the Reply Form has been returned and all admission requirements are met. Final semester grades will be evaluated to ensure applicant continues to meet admission criteria and health care requirements.
Provisionally admitted students AND those on the Alternate List are required to attend an orientation session at the Lewiston campus prior to entry. Orientation information will be provided with the reply form.
Students must meet all final program requirements by the dates specified in the “Letter of Provision Acceptance”.
Those students who continue to be qualified for admission by meeting all admission criteria will then be fully admitted.
IMPORTANT NOTES TO APPLICANTS
Check your LCMail frequently during the admission process. Admission decisions and other important messages are communicated to you through this means.
Incomplete applications or applications received outside the application windows will not be considered for admission.
Notification of admission status is typically made 4-5 weeks after the application deadline.
