A supplemental application is required and generally completed in the Fall semester of the sophomore year. High-school students enrolling in Piedmont College as a freshman who are completing their general education pre-requisites and who meet all requirements (GPA, competitive TEAS score, academic integrity) are granted conditional approval to the nursing program. Please note that students must have a 3.0 GPA for all required nursing pre-requisite courses (this may not be the same as overall GPA). Admission to the nursing program is competitive and this opportunity provides students who begin at Piedmont College the advantage of mentoring and prioritized consideration for admission. We hope you will consider “Living like a Lion” with us for 4 years!
