Nursing – ADN Admissions

Admission to the Nursing program is competitive and is based on points earned through your score on an entrance test and your high school or college grades. There is no waiting list, which means that if you are not offered a seat in the program, you must reapply.

The ADN program begins only in the fall semester.  Classes are held in the day-time only, and very few classes can be completed online.  Classes are held at the main campus in Pinehurst.

Sandhills uses stages to designate your progress toward admission.

Stage 1 – Qualification stage, during which all prerequisites for application must be met.

Stage 2 – Application stage, during which points are calculated and reviewed for consideration.

Stage 3 – Pre-admission stage, during which final requirements must be met in order to receive final placement into the program.
