Admissions Process for the Notre Dame of Maryland University ABSN
If you’re ready to accelerate your nursing education by applying to the Notre Dame of Maryland University ABSN program, follow these four steps in the admissions process:
1. Speak with an admissions counselor
Start by reaching out to a knowledgeable admissions counselor to discuss your previous academic experience and future career aspirations. This initial conversation serves to gauge your compatibility with the Notre Dame ABSN program. Once you’ve been determined to be a good match, your dedicated admissions counselor will then be your main point of contact throughout the admissions process. They’ll guide you through each step of the way, offering advice, guidance and answering any questions that pop up.
2. Make an academic plan
Your admissions counselor will work with you to create an academic plan of action tailored to your specific situation that works toward your target start date. We offer three program start dates in January, May, and September.
3. Complete any needed ABSN prerequisites
Set your academic plan in motion by completing any general and natural science prerequisite courses within the required grade specifications your admissions counselor determines necessary before submitting your application. These courses lay a solid framework for you to draw from once you begin your ABSN coursework.
4. Apply to accelerated nursing school
Complete the accelerated nursing program application online and submit the following materials:
- Official college transcript(s) from all previous institutions
- Current resume
- Personal statement focused on why you are pursuing nursing. If relevant, this statement may also explain reasons behind a lower than accepted GPA.
