On completion, students will demonstrate achievement of the outcomes expected of all CON baccalaureate students. The completion track is 24 credit hours in nine upper-division courses. Courses are offered during the first and second 7-weeks of each 14-week term. This allows students to progress through the curriculum in four terms when focusing on 3 credit hours at a time.

A Registrar s seal and/or legible signature must be included on the transcript. 2. The transcript must be mailed directly to NursingCAS from the Registrar s Office of the school where the course was taken. 3. The transcript cannot be marked Issued to Student or Student Copy. 4. The transcript must reflect all relevant, correct information for the applicant identified on the application. 5. Transcripts cannot be gathered by the student and then mailed to NursingCAS. As stated above, they must come directly from the institution s Registrar s Office. All questions regarding transcripts must be directed to NursingCAS, as the UNM CON does not have access to them until they have been received and processed by NursingCAS. NursingCAS Application and Checklist Before starting your application, it is recommended that you gather all required information and materials: Check nursing.unm.edu for application deadlines and details. Give yourself plenty of time to complete the NursingCAS application. We do not require any information, including references, in the Supporting Information section.

6 NLN Nursing Acceleration Challenge II Information The Nursing Acceleration Challenge II (ACE II) is a timed, computer-based, standardized test offered to facilitate the educational mobility of RN to BSN students. When appropriate, it is a means to earn up to 34 hours of academic credit toward the UNM CON RN to BSN Option. It is not required in the RN to BSN Option for students starting Fall 2015 or later. However, some students may need elective hours, and this test is an option to complete some or all elective hours. Each academic situation is different. It is best to speak with an advisor before scheduling any part of the exam. The ACE II was normed on students in baccalaureate nursing programs. There are four content areas, each with its own exam. Integrated throughout each of the four tests are questions about nutrition, pharmacology, patient teaching, and interpersonal relations. Questions are presented in case situation and are written in the framework of the nursing process. The exam is given four times a year: January, June, July, and November. Taking all four exams requires a full day of testing on Day 1 and a half-day on Day 2. Students may complete any combination of tests depending on needs: 1. Care of the Adult Client 4 hours to complete the test; earns 14 credit hours. 2. Care of the Client With a Mental Disorder 2.5 hours to complete the test; earns 6 credit hours. 3. Care of the Child 2 hours to complete the test; earns 6 credit hours. 4. Care of the Client During Childbearing 2 hours to complete the test; earns 6 credit hours. 5. Successfully passing all four tests earns an additional 2 credit hours. You will receive immediate feedback after each exam; however, full results will be ed by a CON advisor approximately 2 days after the exam. Each exam is scored separately on a pass/fail basis. If the student is unsuccessful on any of the four exams, he or she may re-take it up to three times, for a fee. A pass/fail grade will be sent to UNM Records and added to your transcript. The ACE II cannot be used toward required UNM residency hours. ACE II Exam Registration Please visit to pre-register. You must pre-register and pre-pay for the exam; no walk-ins are allowed. Please contact CON Advisement for the fee, as it varies per test. 5 P a g e

8 FAQs Regarding the NursingCAS Application It is asking me for references. Do I need to include references or other information in the Supporting Information section? References are not required and will not be considered. Please do not include them in your application. If I have already sent my official transcripts to UNM, do I still need to send them to NursingCAS? Yes, you still need to send all official transcripts to NursingCAS for processing. The UNM CON will not accept application transcripts under any circumstances. Do I have to submit my high school transcript? No, we do not require high school transcripts. The only transcripts we require are official college transcripts sent directly to NursingCAS for processing and verification. See above for the official transcript requirements. I am taking a class during the Fall 2015 term. When should I send my transcript to NursingCAS? Admission decisions will already be made by the time Fall 2015 grades post; thus, there is no need to send transcripts to NursingCAS when grades post. If the course is not being taken at UNM, please send official transcripts to UNM Admission to be added to your academic record once the grade is posted. Please note, however, that you will be asked to upload a copy of your Fall 2015 schedule to your NursingCAS application. UNM CON RN to BSN Option FAQs What makes a successful RN to BSN student? 1. Communication with instructors is vital! 2. Proactive planning: Don t wait until the last minute to address an issue you are having. 3. Utilize resources! We are here to help you succeed.

Do I still send all transcripts to NursingCAS? Yes. As an applicant, you must submit transcripts for evaluation. Past applications and transcripts are not stored at the CON. I was previously admitted to the RN to BSN Option. How will the new curriculum impact me? That will vary from student to student, and you are encouraged to meet with an advisor for details on your exact circumstance. Some classes have direct equivalents, others do not. I was previously admitted to the RN to BSN Option and took the ACE II as part of those requirements. How will that apply toward new requirements? The ACE II will apply toward elective hours.
