ABSN@UST empowers you to leverage your previous education into a rewarding career as a nurse. However, in order to do so, you must first meet certain academic requirements.

In addition to holding a non-nursing bachelor’s degree or at least 60 non-nursing college credits from a regionally accredited university, to be eligible to start in the ABSN program at the University of St. Thomas, each student must:

  • Meet—or develop a plan with an admissions advisor to meet—the prerequisites for the program prior to enrollment.
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (including a 3.0 GPA for all prerequisite science courses). If a 3.0 has not been earned, connect with an admissions advisor to discuss options.
  • Earn passing score(s) on either the HESI or the TEAS entrance exam.
