Applications are carefully reviewed by the Admissions Committee on the basis of academic qualifications and potential to succeed in the program. The nursing department adheres to Dixie State University’s policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity in admission decisions. Final acceptance is contingent on the successful completion of the required prerequisite courses with a grade of C or higher.
