Important Application Information
In order to apply to the any of the UCA Nursing Programs you must use NursingCAS, the nursing profession’s online application service.
The application process will be available on the new NursingCAS 3.0 application, which will launch on October 15, 2014. Please do not create an account on the current NursingCAS 2.0 application if applying to any of the UCA Nursing programs. We will have an updated link available to the new application on October 15; it’s important that you wait to create your account until that date.
For any applicants who previously completed a NursingCAS application and plan to re-apply, you will need to create a new account on the NursingCAS 3.0 on October 15 or thereafter. Any previously submitted applications will be deleted from the system, so you will need to reinitiate the application process. However, once an account is created on the new NursingCAS 3.0 application, your ID number and application information will be available to you indefinitely.
We recommend that you save and print a PDF copy of your current application if you plan to apply again. This will allow you to re-enter your information more quickly on the new NursingCAS 3.0 application.
