What to Know

All admissions are conditional pending the results of background checks and drug screens.

Once you are conditionally accepted, you will complete and pass the CastleBranch Certified Background Check, Drug Screen, and Compliance Tracker to be fully accepted into the Nursing Program. Go to mycb.castlebranch.com, and in the upper right-hand corner, enter the Package Code HP13: Background Check-Drug Test. The Department of Nursing has partnered with CastleBranch Compliance Tracker to provide you with a secure account to manage your time-sensitive school and clinical requirements (for example: TB skin test, Hepatitis B series, CPR certification, etc.)

Applicants must submit ALL Castlebranch requirements no later than August 2, 2024, to be accepted to the RN to BSN program.
