Admission Test Requirement

Upon receipt and verification of a completed nursing application packet, eligible students will be e-mailed specific instructions for registering and scheduling a date to take the Kaplan's Nursing Admission Test. This will be to your Gordon email. There will be only one opportunity per application period to take this assessment, so personal arrangements must be made accordingly. Any applicant who does not complete this assessment will not be considered for acceptance into the Nursing Program.
