NURSING

Students intending to major in nursing at the time of application to St. Olaf may be considered for direct admission. You must complete the nursing application, which includes two additional essays at the same time you submit an application to the college. Finalists will be contacted directly by the nursing department to schedule an interview. Students that did not apply or were not selected for direct admission may apply to the nursing major during the fall of the sophomore year.
