Frequently Ask Questions about the BS in Nursing Program
*The proposed MSU Moorhead BS in Nursing program is a member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) where we adhere to common admission criteria. For Fall 2020 nursing program start, consideration for admission to the MSU Moorhead MANE BS in Nursing program is based on TEAS and GPA. Previously it was planned for all applicants to submit a personal statement with their application. However, due to changes in the anticipated MANE holistic admissions timeline, the personal statement will not be required for the Fall 2020 application term. However, admission criteria will change for upcoming application terms starting 2021. The revised criteria for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 application and admission will be posted to our webpage on May 2, 2020.
