The Army Medical Department (AMEDD) has established a two year scholarship provided through the Health Professional Scholarship Program (HPSP).  The APSU School of Nursing is honored to offer opportunities to students pursuing careers in the U.S. Army Healthcare.

The first step in choosing the APSU School of Nursing is to review the admission requirements. All applicants must meet these requirements.

Applications for the Fall Semester are available from March 15th to May 1st of each year. Applications must be submitted to the School of Nursing by 12:00 p.m. on May 1st for consideration for the Fall cohort. Students must already be accepted to APSU and have an APSU email and A number. 
Applications for the Spring Semester are available from July 15th to September 15th of each year. Applications must be submitted to the School of Nursing by 12:00 p.m. on September 15 for consideration for the Spring cohort.

All applicants must complete the required standardized nursing entrance examination by the School of Nursing application deadline. The required examination may be taken once per application period, or every 90 days. 

Acive-Duty applicants can email ATI directly requesting TEAS exam information.

email: military.testing@ascendlearning.com

 ATI will contact you to collect all of your required information and then email you their instructions for ATI TEAS testing.

Active-Duty will be able to take their first exam at no cost. ATI will also provide one official transcript of your scores at no cost. 

Active-Duty military can take the TEAS test once at no cost, and then retake it for $70 dollars. Their spouses and dependents can test twice at $70 each.

To be evaluated you must complete an Advising Worksheet (see link below) and a GPA Ranking Calculator worksheet (see link below). Forward these documents along with unofficial copies of all college transcripts to the AMEDD advisor, Ms. Danielle White whited@apsu.edu or 931-221-7492. This material will be unofficially evaluated.

Once you have been in contact with the AMEDD advisor and have chosen APSU, you will need to apply for admission to the University (link to admissions).

You must have ten or fewer semester hours remaining of the total APSU general education core and nursing prerequisites (8 hours of science completed) for a CLA to be written. A CLA does not guarantee you a place in the Nursing Program. A SON application must be submitted to be considered for placement. A CLA is NOT the same as an application to the School of Nursing. You must be admitted to the University. Qualified candidates will receive one conditional letter, prior to being accepted into the nursing program and one unconditional letter, after being accepted into the program. Unconditional letters will be written after a student is officially accepted into the School of Nursing program, NO EXCEPTIONS.

Unconditional letters of acceptance are written after the application cycle is closed, all prerequisites are completed, grades are received, students are ranked, and your ranking score is competitive enough for the program. This process may not align with the AECP board meetings.
