Attention: New Version of NursingCAS is Launching on October 15, 2014

AACN and its partner, Liaison International, are excited to announce that on October 15, 2014, a new version of NursingCAS, referred to as NursingCAS 3.0, will be released. We have listened to your feedback and have taken steps to develop a system that will truly meet the unique needs of any nursing program. NursingCAS 3.0 will give schools a configuration tool, which will allow you to customize several program-specific requirements, including:

  • Coursework (none, pre-requisites only, full coursework data)
  • Transcripts (none, unofficial, official)
  • Custom questions (if a school needs to capture a question not already captured by NursingCAS that is specific to their program they will have the ability to add it to the application)
  • Number of references (schools can require that an applicant must submit a specific number of references via NursingCAS to be considered for admission to your program)
  • Number of documents (applicants will be able to submit up to 20 documents via NursingCAS to be considered for admission to your program depending on your requirements)
  • Personal statements (schools will be able to identify to applicants which questions or topics should be addressed to be considered for admission to your program)

It’s important to note that although NursingCAS 3.0 will open to applicants on October 15, 2014, the first deadlines that can be published on the new platform will be December 1, 2014. During this transition time, NursingCAS staff will work with each school individually to provide recommendations on implementation timelines, application deadlines, and related issues. Please contact Caroline Allen, AACN’s Senior NursingCAS Manager, at 202-463-6930 ext. 258 or callen@aacn.nche.edu with any questions or concerns.
