The test is given in December for entry into the following Spring class.
- The procedure is basic, with the top 40 students getting into the program. Entrance ranking score formula consists of the following: Test score = 75% + GPA of Prerequisites = 25% to equal 100%.

- Level I applicants: previous nursing courses will not transfer, however there are general education classes in the program that will transfer. All equivalency (pre-requisite) courses with a 2.5 GPA or better are transferable for the Glen Oaks nursing program. You must transfer them officially, from your institution to ours through the mail, and you must ask for them to be evaluated for nursing.

- If I am not currently a Glen Oaks Student, How do I keep updated on information I need to come into the program?
- By keeping up with the information on the nursing webpage; and general information meetings are held a few times a year. This is the easiest way for you to get information. Dates and times for meetings will be posted when they are set on the nursing office calendar. You MUST meet with the director of the program before you apply. Visit the website regularly for updates and requirement information. You may also call, email or stop in to the office at any time.
- If I don't qualify when I test, does my application get moved automatically to the next year, and will my test score be reusable the next year or do I need to test again?
- You must re-submit an application to be considered and yes, you can keep your test score or retake the test to attempt a higher score...with the most recent test score being used to determine eligibility. Test scores can only be used within a year from the original test date.
