Criteria for Admission
All students must meet the general admission requirements of Hampton University and the specific admission requirements of the School of Nursing. Admission to the Department of Undergraduate Nursing Education programs is a two-tier process: Students must be admitted to the Pre-Nursing Program and to the Professional Program.
The acceptance letter into HU satisfies admission to Pre-Nursing, but does not automatically qualify students for acceptance into the Professional Program. A student must complete a separate application for admission to the Professional Program of the Department of Undergraduate Nursing Education. The School of Nursing Department of Undergraduate Nursing Education handles the admissions process for the Professional Program. A competitive ranking scale is utilized during the admission process. Emphasis is placed on overall GPA, science and math GPA, and scores on the HESI A2®.
Students seeking admission to the Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree in nursing program are subject to the rules and regulations applied by the Graduate College and the Department of Graduate Nursing Education. Admission to graduate study in nursing at Hampton University is open to all qualified applicants who meet the requirements as stated in the Graduate Catalog. Potential students are encouraged to consult the Graduate Catalog prior to applying for admission.
Active Duty Military and Veterans
The School of Nursing abides by University policies for awarding advanced credit for active duty military and veterans. Veterans/active duty military students are subject to the same admission policies governing all other undergraduate and transfer students and must submit copies of DD Form 214 or DD Form 295. Active duty military and veterans who were previously military corpsmen/medics may elect to seek advanced placement credit by successfully completing credit by examination. We do not offer advanced admissions or letters stating advanced admissions.
