AMEDD and Associated Programs

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. (Link to the Bulletin?).

Fall Start: 

Application for the Fall Semester are available from March 1st 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 Semester.

Spring Start: 

Application for the Spring Semester are available from July 1st to September 1st of each year. Applications must be submitted to the School of Nursing by 12:00 p.m. on September 1st for consideration for the Spring Semester.

 Standardized Exam:

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. The fee-based examination must be taken on campus at APSU unless there are extenuating circumstances recognized by the School of Nursing Admission and Retention Committee.

 Evaluation of Prior Academic Work:

To be evaluated you must complete an Advising Worksheet (link) and a GPA Ranking Calculator worksheet (link). 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).

Conditional Letter of Acceptance (CLA):

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.
