Nursing Scholar Admission
To be eligible to apply for the Nursing Scholar Program, you must be currently validated and meet the initial criteria of an overall GPA of 3.5 or better. Those students who validate Winter and Spring/Summer semesters and meet the GPA criteria, will be eligible to apply for the following Winter semester. Winter semester letters and applications are mailed out mid to end-September. Those students who validate Fall semester and meet the GPA criteria, will be eligible to apply for the following Fall semester. Fall semester letters and applications are mailed out mid to end-March.
Each semester (Fall, Winter) we send out approximately 130 letters and applications to qualified applicants. We receive roughly half of those back. We then choose an additional 12 students per semester to come in to the full-time RN program, and an additional 8 students to come into the part-time RN program each Fall semester.
Students are rated based on the initial criteria of an overall GPA of 3.5 or better, number of credits completed at Delta College, work experience in the health care field, and written essay. Additional criteria include whether or not the student has completed any Honors Option courses. Points are subtracted if the student has had to repeat any of his/her BIO courses.
The Nursing Scholar Program is implemented each Fall and Winter semester in the full-time RN program, and Fall semester in the part-time RN program.
