Application Information

Acceptance to the Associate of Science in Nursing Program at St. Catherine is a two-step process. First, you must apply to the university and be accepted as an associate pre-nursing student (covered on this page). Once you have been admitted and completed prerequisite course work (typically at the end of your first year), you will apply to the nursing department to begin nursing courses.

Spaces in this program are in demand. Being a pre-nursing student, and completing prerequisite courses on time, is your key to gaining a space in nursing courses.

Apply now to enter the pre-nursing program in the Spring 2013 semester. Spaces are limited — apply soon.
