Admission to Nursing (BSN/ABSN Programs)
Welcome to the Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing offering Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs for both first- and second-degree students. The information here is for students who are not yet licensed as an RN. Information for the online program for those already licensed and working as RNs may be found on the Online and Continuing Education pages.
The Portland Campus has two program options: an accelerated course of study, beginning in June, for those who have previously completed a bachelor degree in another field and a traditional program, beginning fall and spring, for all students. These pages will provide the information you will need whether you are exploring nursing programs, completing prerequisite courses, or ready to apply for admission.
