The College of Nursing will review all qualified applicants after the priority deadline.  Students should expect to hear about their admission status approximately six weeks following the completion of the review of applicants.  Students may continue to apply after the priority admission date and applications will be reviewed as spots are available for admission or on the waiting list.

Students provisionally admitted into the program will receive information by e-mail regarding required next steps such as background checks, drug screening, immunizations, physical examinations, health insurance, CPR, etc.  Students must ensure submission and approval of all required documents prior to the term's application deadline.  If the submission requirements are not met the student may need to withdraw from the program and another student will be admitted in their place.

Each state and territory have different professional licensure and certification requirements. The programs at Fairmont State University have been designed to meet relevant requirements for programs in the State of West Virginia.

Licensure requirements may include educational or degree requirements, professional examinations, background checks, work experience, character and fitness qualifications, fingerprinting, drug screening, and other requirements.
