    I just thought I would post this becaused I was trying to find more information myself and I came across this without any answers. I am going to post what I have discovered from talking to someone at the nursing department in hopes that this may answer someone else's future questions.

    3 courses must be taken prior to the fall (Eng. Comp I, Gen. Psychology, Anat/Physiology I).
    A 21 on the ACT gets you unconditional acceptance into the program.

    A student with an ACT composite score of 19 or 20 OR a grade point average of at least 3.0 in required general education courses may be considered for conditional admission.

    Clinicals are done in Meridian, MS; Demopolis, AL, Tuscaloosa, AL, and at times there may be a clinical in Birmingham or Waynesboro, Ms. Application, official transcripts, and ACT scores must be submitted before March 1.
