Applying for Admission

Your first step to becoming a Labouré student.

Labouré encourages qualified students of all ages and backgrounds interested in a career in healthcare to apply for acceptance. The first step is to submit your application packet. 

As an applicant, you will be considered based on your academic credentials and your capacity to succeed in your intended program of study. No applicant shall be denied admission based on race, age, sex, religion, or disability. Since direct patient contact is involved in the clinical aspect of most programs, you must be able to perform the required duties without compromising the patient's safety or welfare.

Your application packet

Every applicant to Labouré will submit the following basic required items: 

  • Completed application for admission, with non-refundable application fee
  • Documentation of high school graduation, GED completion, or other state approved equivalency credential (waived for RN-BSN applicants)
  • Official college transcript(s) from all institutions attended (if applicable)
  • Copy of any professional licenses, registrations, or certifications (if applicable)
  • Program specific requirements or items requested by the Admissions Department (if applicable). To review these requirements, please select your program of interest below: 

If any of your documents are from schools attended outside of the United States, your documents must be translated into English if not in English already, and evaluated by a licensed agency to show American grading system equivalency. If you aren't sure how to start this process, our admissions team can help!

Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not graduated from an American high school or college may be asked to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System).

Applicants must review and acknowledge the technical standards required for their program of interest during the application process. If you have questions about the clinical requirements of your program, please contact admissions to be connected with your program's dean or chairperson.

Application process

The admissions process at Labouré is on a rolling basis. Rolling means that there are no final deadlines to apply; rather, applications are reviewed as they become complete and until a program is filled. 

You can apply at any time for the next upcoming semester. If the semester you are applying for fills up, your application can be considered for the next available semester. 

Labouré accepts students three semesters per year*^, with start dates in Spring (January), Summer (May), and Fall (September). 

*Some programs have limited start dates. 
^Each semester has a Session I and Session II. Many programs accept students for both sessions, giving those programs 6 start dates per year. 

Your admissions decision will arrive electronically and/or in the mail. 

Appeals of admissions decisions may be made in writing to the Vice President of Enrollment Management via email to Please include your name, email address, telephone number, the program you applied to, and a brief description of your appeal.
