Master’s In Nursing Application Requirements

It’s important for you to review the Nursing Catalog before you apply.


To apply to this program, you must have completed a bachelor’s degree program in nursing from a regionally accredited college or university, or the foreign equivalent, at an institution that was approved by ACEN, CCNE, or CNEA at the time of your attendance.

You’ll need to submit the following when you apply:

  • An official transcript showing you completed a bachelor’s degree in nursing
  • A copy of your license to practice as a registered nurse in the U.S.
  • A completed MS Capstone Requirements form.


If you don’t already have one, you’ll be prompted to create a MyExcelsior account when you begin your application. The application fee is $50. You can save your work and go back to it later if you need to.
