Once a home campus selection has been made, applicants must be accepted for admission to the graduate division and college/school of Nursing at the designated home campus. Final admission to the program is based on competitive selection from the pool of eligible applicants who meet the admission requirements from the designated home campus, as well as the admission standards for TN eCampus. Notification of final admission status will come from the graduate division of the designated home campus. Following admission to the university, students may enroll in Master’s-level courses. Some schools will allow students to be admitted provisionally or conditionally. If you do not meet the requirements for regular admission, ask your home campus about seeking provisional or conditional admission status.
