About the Pre-licensure BSN Program 

Our program prepares you to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination-RN (NCLEX-RN) after graduation. At UM Nursing, you will learn how to apply what you learn in the classroom into your nursing professional practice. You will have an opportunity to be apart of a nursing program with dedicated faculty with small class sizes (Faculty to student ratio is 1:24 in classroom). Also, you will have opportunities to engage in simulation lab experiences in our brand-new UM Simulation and Skills Lab and go out into the surrounding community and complete your clinical experiences at hospitals, clinics, and various community agencies. As an UM BSN graduate, you will be prepared to make a positive difference in the lives of your patients, families, nursing profession and your community.

Pre-licensure BSN Application Information 

The University of Montevallo (UM) Pre-licensure BSN program is a specialized admission program, which means admission to UM does not guarantee admission to the nursing program. You must first be admitted to UM through the Office of Admissions prior to applying to the BSN program.  

Admission to the program is competitive and spaces are limited. We have a capacity to admit 24 students for the Fall 2024 semester. When the number of students applying to the program exceeds the number of spaces available, the most qualified applicants will be admitted based on the admission requirements.

If you have already been admitted to the University of Montevallo, you will then need to complete the application for the BSN program through NursingCAS. The application is now open as of June 3, 2024.

You must submit all your documents using NursingCAS. You will create an account, login, and then search for the University of Montevallo. Please be sure to complete all requirements as indicated. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.  

Note: You are required to submit official transcripts to NursingCAS even if you are a current UM student. Please allow two weeks for transcripts to be processed and verified by NursingCAS. Applicants that are not verified by NursingCAS will be considered incomplete and not be reviewed.  

Please use the Nursing Application Checklist(PDF) to ensure that you complete all the requirements of the application process.
