Applicants for The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Nursing


All students who wish to become candidates for the B.S. in nursing degree are required to take a prenursing sequence of courses in which they must achieve a minimum of a 2.75 index in the required science courses, attain basic skills levels set by the Department of Nursing, be in good academic standing in the College, and meet any other criteria established by the Department of Nursing. Students are admitted at the start of their junior year to the B.S. in Nursing Program on a space-available basis. All candidates for the Program in Nursing should request, prior to admission to the College, copies of the Departmental curriculum and the brochure, "Nursing at Lehman," available in the Department of Nursing (T-3 Building, Room 209, 718-960-8374).


Freshman applicants to Prenursing are admitted through the University Application Processing Center (UAPC) by the usual City University admission procedure. UAPC determines eligibility by the uniform admission standards applied to all Lehman freshman applicants.

Registered Nurses

City University A.A.S. nursing graduates are allocated by the University Application Processing Center (UAPC) to Lehman College on the basis of space availability, Grade Point Average, and success on the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX). Other transfer students must satisfy these same eligibility requirements. Applicants who attended a hospital school of nursing and have earned no previous college credits should file the transfer application through UAPC. Those who have earned previous college credits, in addition to having attended a hospital school of nursing, should also file a transfer application through UAPC. To earn credit for courses taken at a hospital school of nursing, students must (1) present a license to practice as a registered nurse and (2) earn credits from Excelsior College (formerly Regents College) by examination in specific nursing courses.
