Previously admitted students who withdrew need to reapply to MSUM and to the School of Nursing. If you reapply to the School of Nursing the semester after withdrawing, you must also reapply to MSUM unless you are enrolled in a non-nursing course.
Two separate application processes must be completed:
The Homeland Security Act of 2002 fundamentally changed the requirements for the international students who wish to study in the United States. The major change that affects an online program is that no more than the equivalent of one online/distance education class or 3 credits per session may count towards the "full course of study" requirement. A full copy of the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) Advisory Manual is available through the International Student Affairs Office [Chapter 3: F-1 Students; Section 3.20.7; Authority cite 8 C.F.R. SS 214.2(f) (6) (i) (G)]. Students are able to be admitted to this program if they have an active Work Visa. Students are unable to be admitted to this program if they have a Student Visa.
Orientation to the online RN to BSN (RNB) program will be part of the first course taken by all newly admitted students. An online study module contains information, activities, and tools that will help ensure your comfort and success in this online nursing program.
In order to access this orientation module, you must first be enrolled in NURS 302: Bridge to BSN Education. You will receive instructions a few weeks prior to the start of the course on how to access this course online. We look forward to "meeting" you!
