John Brown University began to offer Nursing courses, in the Fall of 2014. Admission as a nursing student (either as an incoming freshman or as a transfer student) will be based on similar criteria used for other academic programs at JBU.

In order to progress to the clinical phase of the major at the beginning of their junior year, students will have to meet a certain minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 and a science and Math GPA of 2.5 during the first two years, as well as make a personal statement that describes their motivation for a career in nursing. Students will be notified of their acceptance into the upper division nursing program early in the spring of their sophomore year.
