Nursing Early Assurance Program (NEAP)
The College of Nursing offers an early assurance program for High School Seniors and college freshman (fewer than 30 credit hours) interested in earning a Bachelor of Science (BS) in nursing at the University of Utah. Candidates for NEAP in any given year are considered applicants to the accelerated program starting two years thereafter. For example, candidates applying to the University of Utah as a freshmen in Fall, will begin the nursing program in approximately two years.
NEAP eliminates the uncertainty associated with undergoing a competitive application process to gain entry to the nursing program after completing two years of General Education and Prerequisite coursework. Students are encouraged to participate in enrichment activities during their freshman and sophomore years, such as community engaged learning, undergraduate research or study abroad thus enriching their university experience.
