Students are encouraged to express an interest in the nursing major upon application for admission to WLC. Enrollment in the program is
limited, and admission is competitive. This information regarding the application process is intended for traditional freshmen. All transfer students will work with an Admissions counselor and the Chair of the School of Nursing to devise a personalized
plan of study.
Meeting the minimum criteria for admission may not be sufficient to be admitted to the nursing major. Required criteria:
Students not accepted may choose to be placed on a waiting list and will be notified of their rank on that list. If openings occur, admission will be offered to students by rank. Students on the waiting list may also reapply for admission to the nursing
program the following year. They will be considered in the next pool of applications but will not be guaranteed admission.
