The Dr. D.W. McMillan Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program is a limited access program, which means admission to UWF does not guarantee admission to the program. You must first be admitted to UWF through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Then, you will complete an additional application using NursingCAS.
You should have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 and an overall composite score of at least 75% on the Test of Essential Academic Skills, or TEAS, Exam to be eligible to apply to the program.
The Test of Essential Academic Skills is used as part of the admissions process by Nursing and Allied Health schools nationwide. UWF Testing Services offers the exam throughout the year.
In addition to the General Education requirements listed on this page, students must satisfy all additional University requirements, including the Gordon Rule, multicultural, and foreign language requirements. With appropriate planning and coordination with an academic advisor, students may satisfy some of the general University requirements through the General Education curriculum. For a complete listing of general degree requirements, refer to the “University Requirements” section.
