The Auburn Montgomery Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program is considered one of the best in the state.
The traditional four-year baccalaureate program has two components — a Lower Division and an Upper Division, each taking two years to complete if you attend full-time.
The Lower Division consists of courses in the humanities and the biophysical and behavioral sciences. After you successfully complete this component, you may apply to the Upper Division and, if accepted, continue with a series of nursing courses and clinicals.
After completing most of the prerequisite courses, including at least
3 of the required laboratory sciences, students must apply for
admission to the upper division of the School of Nursing. Nursing applications are separate from the general university
application. The number of students admitted to the upper division is
limited, and applicants are chosen based on their academic performance
in the lower division prerequisites, an interview, and amount of AUM credit earned.

Previous Degree Requirements
Admission requirements include (but are not limited to):
- A minimum of a 2.50 (on a 4.0 scale) grade-point average on the required Lower Division courses
- Completion of each Lower Division course with at least a C. If a D or F is earned, you must retake the course. But grade adjustments or replacements are not allowed. Your grade is counted each time you take a course in calculating the pre-nursing GPA
- Submission of a Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) score
Candidates for admission will be ranked on the basis of their grade-point average, interview score, TEAS score, and amount of AUM credit. The most qualified applicants will be offered admission. School of Nursing applications are separate from the general university applications and may be obtained on the website in December for Fall admission and in March for Spring admission. Applications for Fall admission must be submitted by February 1 (or the last business day of January, if February 1 falls on a weekend), and applications for Spring admission must be submitted by May 1 (or the last business day of April, if May 1 falls on a weekend).
The number of applicants exceeds available openings, so admission is competitive.
