The application deadline for Fall 2013 enrollment has passed. The application for Fall 2014 should be available later this summer.
The Yale School of Nursing is a graduate level program. All applicants must have earned the equivalent of a U.S. baccalaureate-level degree by the fall enrollment date. Candidates are evaluated on a number of variables including: evidence of motivation, academic ability, personal understanding of and propensity for advanced practice nursing, references, interview, and potential for continued constructive use of professional education.
All official transcripts (in their originally sealed envelopes) should be submitted to the Office of Admissions either by the applicant or sent directly from the academic institution(s). Transcripts from international institutions are subject to the evaluation by the credentialing agency.
Letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically through the online application system. Please see the recommendation section of the application for more information.
Applicants to Yale School of Nursing who have applied three times to the same program without an offer of admission will not be allowed to reapply to that program again.
The PhD in Nursing is facilitated by Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. For more information, please click here.
YSN only enrolls new students once per calendar year, in late August.
