Spring 2018 application period will open March, 2017.
Applicants are encouraged to complete the Kaplan Entrance Exam and achieve a successful score.
The USCB Pre-licensure BSN program is reviewing its admission policies for future applicants. While USCB values the individual scores for each component of the Kaplan Admission Test, we recognize meeting each and every benchmark can be intimidating.
Effective immediately, individuals applying for entry into the BSN program for 2018 will be reviewed with a modified approach to the Kaplan Assessment Test Scores. It is recommended but not required that applicants meet or exceed scores in all categories. The greatest emphasis will be placed on the Overall Score and the Science Score.
Policies related to GPA and other requirements remain unchanged. Consistent with past practice, applicants do have the option to take the Kaplan Admission Test up to two times. We will be adding additional testing dates between May and July so please check your email for future correspondence or check our website for the latest dates at www.uscb.edu/nursing
