Admission requirements

According to Frontier Nursing University, to be eligible for admission to the WHNP program, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Be a registered nurse with educational preparation from a nationally accredited nursing program (CCNE or ACEN). 1) Registered nurses with a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing will be considered for admission to the MSN Program. 2) Registered nurses without a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing, who have completed a diploma or associate degree nursing program and have a bachelor’s degree in another discipline, will be considered for admission to the MSN Program with the additional requirement of a portfolio of relevant employment and academic experience. 3) Registered nurses who have an Associate Degree in Nursing but no baccalaureate degree in any discipline will be considered for admission via the ADN Bridge Entry Option.
  • Have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 from the most recent degree (nursing or related field) earned.
  • Be a registered nurse with a current, active license in the United States with no encumbrances. If assignment to a clinical practice site requires that the student practice in another state, then the student is required to meet licensing requirements according to statutes and obtain the appropriate license.
  • Have one year of Registered Nursing Experience. For RNs with less than one year of RN experience, the Admissions Committee may consider other significant experience in health care including working as a doula, childbirth educator, and/or lactation consultant.
  • Applicants whose primary language is not English and/or who have completed their tertiary education (level equivalent to U.S. college or university) in a non-English speaking institution, must take the internet based TOEFL (IBT) and achieve the following minimum scores: Reading 22, Listening 22, Speaking 26, and Writing 24. To be considered official, test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to the University. Frontier Nursing University’s TOEFL code is 5692. Please provide this code to TOEFL when taking the exam to ensure test results are expedited to the University.
