A new ADN class is admitted once a year in the fall semester with an application deadline of March 1. ADN readmission, LPN-RN, and transfer applicants who were in another nursing program are admitted to either fall or spring semester with an application deadline of March 1 or November 1, respectively.

1. Submit to the University of Pikeville admissions office by the respective deadline date:
  • Online application for admission to the University of Pikeville (complete a new application if not currently enrolled at the University of Pikeville).
