Applications for the Registered Nurse to BSN Online Program are accepted year-round. The admissions requirements, governed by the Colorado Articulation Model, are the following:

  • Nursing License: Applicants must have a unrestricted Colorado Nursing License in good standing or a multi-state Nursing License. Applicants without a Nursing License may be admitted with proof of enrollment in a Colorado Associate Degree or Diploma Nursing program with the ability to receive Colorado Nursing License prior to starting graduate-level courses.
  • Associate Degree: Students must have an Associate's Degree or be enrolled in a program to receive an Associate's Degree or Diploma in Nursing before starting any program coursework. 
  • Transcripts: Official transcripts from all institutions attended must be sent electronically or by mail. 
  • Background Check: Per Colorado Law, the University is required to run a background check on applicants.
  • Immunization Record: Applicants must provide latest record of vaccinations received
  • COVID – 19 Vaccination Memo


Applicants must complete the online application. The application requires official transcripts from all colleges which the student has attended. Once the application and transcripts have been received, students will receive an admission decision to both the University and to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences simultaneously.

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences partners with CastleBranch, a background screening and compliance tracking company. All applicants must set up a CastleBranch account to submit documents for admission. Visit Nursing Handbook and Resources for more information.
