Maricopa/ASU RN-BSN Pathway Update
In the past, the nursing program at ASU has had capacity limitations such that only those students who had a 2.75 GPA in the specified set of courses and met all of the other requirements of the RN-BSN pathway were guaranteed admission into the program. Those with a 2.50-2.74 GPA in that specified set of courses were also considered for the program depending on space availability. ASU has informed us that effective this fall, students with a 2.5 GPA in the specified set of courses, who also meet all of the other requirements, will be guaranteed admission in to the RN-BSN program, per the pathway agreement. Please share this change with Maricopa students and those who would be interested in this update.
