About

Ranked in the top 4% of nursing undergraduate programs nationwide by U.S. News and World Report, the Nursing program at Virginia Commonwealth University typically begins in the sophomore year. However, highly qualified high school seniors may gain admission as entering freshman through the VCU Honors College Guaranteed Admission Program.

Overview

About the Program

Applicants with college credits who are seeking their first degree in nursing should apply to the traditional B.S. track of the Nursing program at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Applicants who have a baccalaureate or higher degree but no nursing degree have two options to apply for admission: apply to the traditional B.S. track, (no courses taught during the summer) or apply to the accelerated B.S. track, which starts in the summer and is the quickest path to obtain a baccalaureate degree.

Both tracks prepare graduates with the nursing knowledge and skills needed for professional practice. After earning the B.S. in nursing, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses.
