To be considered for the Belanger School of Nursing/Siena College Baldwin Nursing Program Dual Degree Nursing Department, you need a completed application, including official high school transcript, counselor recommendation and essay specific to the nursing program (see below). You may apply via Siena College’s Fast Forward application or the Common Application.
A challenging four year curriculum is ideal. We like to see four years of high school mathematics and four years of natural/physical sciences (including biology or chemistry). We will review each application on an individual basis.
Test scores are optional. However, to be accepted test optional you'll need 19 academic units during high school, including four years of math (including pre-calculus) and four years of science (including chemistry and biology). If we need your test scores during the review process, we will let you know.
Your essay should discuss activities, interests and/or volunteer experiences you have had in school or community organizations that will enhance your experience as a nurse.
Applications are due on November 1.
