Mandatory Requirements for All Students

All students selected for admission to the nursing program must meet clinical agency requirements, be able to perform essential functions, be eligible for RN licensure, and capable of fulfilling clinical practice requirements.

Drug Screening and Criminal Background Checks

Information regarding the College of Nursing and Health Profession’s Drug Screening and Criminal Background policies are found in the College of Nursing and Health Professions Handbook.


Students admitted into USI’s BSN program are required to purchase and complete all CastleBranch requirements one week prior to the start of spring semester.  Students who have not completed the CastleBranch requirements by the due date will not be admitted into the BSN program and will be administratively removed from the spring nursing courses (NURS 246, NURS 247, NURS 251).

Submission and verification of all required documents is through CastleBranch.  Students are responsible for updating all required documents throughout the program.

The number of students admitted to the nursing program is limited by the availability of instructional resources and clinical learning sites.
