Master of Science in Nursing: Admission Requirements


In conjunction with the general admission requirements of the University, program applicants must:

  • Submit a completed Graduate Application Form or apply online for free.

  • Submit an official transcript of a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing which is accredited by both a regional accrediting organization and a nationally recognized accrediting agency in Nursing Education.

  • Applicants to the Post-Master’s Certificate as an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner must also submit an official transcript which demonstrates graduation from a regionally accredited Master’s degree program in Nursing.

  • Request that each college attended forward official transcripts directly to Neumann University’s Admissions Office.

  • Have an undergraduate or graduate cumulative GPA of 3.00. Outstanding applicants whose GPA is less than 3.00 are considered for conditional acceptance.

  • Provide letters from two (2) persons recommending the applicant’s capacity for graduate study. One must be provided by a professional nurse who has observed the applicant’s clinical performance. All letters must be official, either on letterhead and in a sealed envelope, signed by the recommender or directly from the recommender via email.

  • Provide a copy of a current registered nursing license for practicum states.

  • Complete one year of recent clinical practice as a Registered Nurse.

  • Submit a current résumé.

  • Have official TOEFL scores submitted directly from ETS (if of a non-native English-speaking country). Non-U.S. citizens must provide an Affidavit of Support.

Once all admission materials have been received and processed through the Office of Admissions, the graduate Program Director/Coordinator will arrange for an interview, if appropriate, following a review of all candidate credentials.


A limited number of federally funded nurse traineeships are available for full-time students. Funds from the Mary Alice Holland Scholarship Fund are also awarded to selected graduate students.

For additional information about either traineeships or scholarship funds, call the Division of Nursing and Health Sciences at 610-558-5561.
