Nursing Triple Guarantee

Guarantee your spot.

Eligible students can ensure a spot in the nursing program even before completing prerequisites.

Guaranteed admission

Here's how getting into most nursing schools works: first, you have to complete two to four semesters of college with outlined prerequisite courses. Then, you apply to a nursing program. But depending on your competition that year, you may not get in. You might have to take a semester off or apply to multiple nursing schools—and lose your higher freshman scholarship if you transfer colleges.

At Union, we've transformed the process. With guaranteed admission, we save your spot so that once you're done with the three prerequisite semesters at Union, you can jump right into the nursing program. 

Who is eligible?

High school students enrolling in college for the first time (advanced placement courses in high school are allowed) who meet the following criteria:

  • Cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 or above on a 4.00 scale
  • Minimum score of 24 on the ACT or 1190 on the new SAT 1600 scale

Sound amazing? If you meet the criteria, all you need to do to secure your spot is complete Union College's application—Apply now!

Every student receives a scholarship—guaranteed.

NEW: Union now offers even better scholarship for nursing transfer students. If you are transferring to Union from another college, we will award you great scholarships based on your college GPA. Your final scholarship amount will be calculated after you complete all prerequisite courses.

Guaranteed a job when you graduate

One hundred percent of Union's nursing graduates get jobs within three months of passing the NCLEX-RN. Our alumni's careers take them all across the country and the world, or they stay closer to home, working locally at Bryan Health, CHI St. Elizabeth or elsewhere in Nebraska.

One health network loves our students and the quality of a Union education so much, they've guaranteed any Union College nursing graduate a job at one of their hospitals in Ohio—even giving a $10,000 signing bonus (up to $2,500 for each year at Union College).
