Nursing Programs

Students who are able to successfully complete the Norwich University BSN program are eligible to apply to sit for the NCLEX RN. The curriculum is offered in a combination of in classroom theoretical instruction, learning laboratories, simulated laboratories and a range of clinical settings. The program is affiliated with the University of Vermont’s Fletcher Allen Medical Center and with the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

Students in the program are offered a range of technological applications in the classroom and clinical settings including through the use of handheld PDAs and smart phone apps.

Admission to the nursing program is only open for enrollment in the fall semester due to limited space availability and structured curriculum sequence.

Admission to the program is highly competitive depending on the class standing, grade point average, recommendations and results on standardized exams along with other requirements.

Students seeking to transfer into the program will be allowed to do so depending on the availability of space in the program and conditional on the transfer credit evaluation. The Chair of the nursing department makes the final decision on the students transferring into the program.
