How to Apply

The application process differs slightly for the BS program and the RN-BS program*.

For both programs, all letters of recommendation should be uploaded along with your application. If they cannot be for any reason, they should be mailed, in a sealed envelope from the person providing the letter of recommendation to:

Touro University
Office of Admissions
225 Eastview Drive
Central Islip, New York 11722

All official transcripts could also be mailed to the above-mentioned address.

Applying to the BS Program

You can apply to the program through the general Touro application.

You will need:

  • Official high school transcript OR a GED certificate and score sheet
  • Official transcript(s) of any college-level work completed
  • Personal Statement
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • ATI TEAS Exam scores. Learn about our admissions exam requirement. This exam has an additional cost, separate from the application fee.
  • Live interview: The interview consists of a series of verbal questions that will be recorded for the admissions committee to review. This holistic approach allows us to meet you, get a sense of your personality, and potential, and assess your unique experiences, alongside the traditional measures of academic achievement in your application. You will be invited, by email, to this interview, when all the above requirements are complete. The email will come from a Touro University Nursing Program Representative.

Applying to the RN to BS Program

Apply through the general Touro application, with the $50 application fee. 

You will need:

  • Official transcript(s) indicating completion of diploma or associate's level nursing program. The RN-BS Program is structured so that a minimum of 24 credits of liberal arts courses are needed in transfer from an Associate’s degree program. Students with fewer than 24 transfer credits in liberal arts will be required to take additional liberal arts courses during the program.
  • Personal statement
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Unencumbered New York State license and current registration as a registered nurse in the state of New York or eligibility for licensure endorsement

*If a current Touro nursing student fails out of the nursing program, regardless of track, they cannot reapply to any other track within the nursing program.
