Important Information:

In an effort to improve the ADN program, changes to the application process and waiting list have been made with much thought and consideration.

  • Due to the competitive nature of the program, it is highly recommended that all pre-nursing students meet with a nursing program advisor. A nursing advisor is available by appointment or walk-in Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. You can schedule an appointment with Valerie Warner by calling (208) 732-6724 or emailing vwarner@csi.edu. You can also meet with the HSHS student advisor, Hannah Clark, by calling (208) 732-6730 or emailing hclark@csi.edu.
  • Students currently on the waiting list who have previously applied to the program, will be admitted to the program during the spring 2016 and fall 2016 semesters depending upon his/her placement on the waiting list.
  • Starting with new applicants for the February 15, 2016 deadline, there will no longer be a waiting list for the program.
  • 50 students are admitted to the program every fall and spring semester.
  • All applications will be scored and totaled after the application deadline. Applicants with a proficient or higher score on the designated nursing entrance exam (TEAS-V test) and who have successfully completed pre-requisite courses are considered eligible to apply. The top point earning students from the score sheet will be offered a seat in the program for the semester following the application deadline (excluding summer semester).
  • MATH 143 or MATH 153, BIOL 227, BIOL 228, BIOL 221 must have been completed within seven (7) years of application.
  • Applications will be reviewed in a timely manner after the application deadline. Students will be notified by email to the email address provided on the ADN application after the application has been reviewed. Students may contact the HSHS student advisor regarding his/her application, documents received, score sheet, etc.
  • All applicants are notified of their status by the email address provided on the ADN application and are given a seat in the program when one is available.
  • If you are taking courses at another institution, make sure to send official transcripts from that school to CSI's Office of the Registrar for transfer credit purposes.
