Nursing Scholar Admission
The Nursing Scholar Program is an option for students to enter the clinical portion of the nursing program sooner than their ranking on the waitlist would permit. 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. Nursing Scholar is available for the RN full time and RN part time programs. Fall semester application invitations are emailed to eligible students' Delta student emails the first week of April. Winter semester application invitations are emailed to eligible students' Delta student emails mid to end-October.
Up to 30 clinical spots are reserved for potential Scholar students for the full-time RN program each fall and winter semester, and up to 20 clinical spots are reserved for potential Scholar students for the full-time RN program each fall semester.
Various factors will be utilized to determine the top applicants. Entry will be based not only on GPA, but also the number of credit hours completed at Delta, honors courses, repeated courses, final grade in BIO 152 and BIO 153 or BIO 240 and BIO 241, work experience related to nursing, and score on a standardized assessment exam. Applicants must be a Certified Nursing Assistant or equivalent (include proof from employer) to apply.
