Leadership Team selects “MEPN Class of 2020”

The MEPN Team had a busy week finalizing the admission decisions for the incoming MEPN class.

Personal interviews took place last week, on campus, where 150 qualified applicants came to campus to meet current students and participate in a 1:1 interview with faculty. Many thanks to current students and faculty who participated in the interview process.

At USD, we use a holistic review of all applications. This means that after candidates meet the admission requirements, we widen the lens through which we view applicants, recognizing and valuing different dimensions that shape each individual. Careful consideration is given to experiences, attributes, and academic merit. It’s not just a numbers game.

From what I have seen and heard, the MEPN Class of 2020 will be a wonderful addition to the Hahn School of Nursing. Keep an eye out for our new group of students, who will be on campus, beginning in August.
