With small class sizes and access to premier clinical learning opportunities, the programs within the School of Nursing are highly competitive, so students are encouraged to apply early.

Undergraduate students accepted to Catholic University are matriculated into the two-year Nursing Exploratory Program. Following successes in several academic reviews, they will then graduate into the upper echelon of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Prospective Masters and Doctorate degree candidates are evaluated on a number of requirements, not limited to post-baccalaureate nursing experience as well as top marks on undergraduate study transcripts. Students admitted to any one of the School of Nursing degree programs are primed to become leaders in their fields, armed with a heart for service and a mind for science.

We welcome students of all backgrounds into our programs. Although our programs are rooted in Catholic teachings, we emphasize service to all, regardless of religious background. Our student nurses are steeped in the values of inclusion and respect for all people. They respond to today's public health needs and serve vulnerable populations that include the homeless, immigrant, and poor.
