Application Instructions

The RN to BSN program does not require a separate application from FMU. Students need only to apply to FMU and be officially accepted in order to start the RN to BSN program.

The instructions below will walk you through the steps of the application process.

1. Request a transcript evaluation.

Contact Ms. Kelly Heavner, the Student Services Coordinator. She will evaluate transcripts for you unofficially and let you know what courses are transferrable and what general education you will need to complete, if any.

2. Apply to FMU.

Once you have been officially accepted to FMU, please email Dr. Nina Russell, the RN to BSN Coordinator, and she will help you start the RN to BSN program.

Your application is complete. Here's what comes next.

Dr. Russell will email you with further information and instructions.

Upon acceptance into the RN to BSN program, learners must provide 3 letters of reference in FMU’s online documentation system, CastleBranch. Instructions will be included in your RN to BSN welcome email.

Application Deadlines

Application deadline to FMU is one week before classes start. However, it is highly recommended that the application process be completed well in advance in order for all paperwork and documents to be processed in a timely and accurate manner. Please allow a generous amount of time to process transcripts and financial aid.
