Nursing Guaranteed Placement Program replaces early admission

The School of Nursing has revamped the former Early Admission Option program and launched the new Guaranteed Placement Program for high school seniors. Key changes to the program include an increased number of accepted prerequisite hours, a new, streamlined online application, and the requirement for students to work one-on-one with a College of Health Professions advisor for guidance throughout the professional program.

High school students who are accepted into the program and start their college career at Wichita State are guaranteed entry into the competitive traditional BSN nursing program – so long as they continue to meet eligibility requirements. This popular program appeals to many students because securing a spot in the highly competitive nursing program establishes their higher education path.

“We are very pleased to implement these changes to the program,” said Brandy Jackson, undergraduate director of the School of Nursing. “The updated requirements and processes will provide students with more support and simplify their path as they transition to our program.”
