GRE no longer required for PhD, DNP, ABSN admissions

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is no longer a mandatory component of the application process for prospective students seeking admission to the PhD, DNP or Accelerated 2nd BSN Degree (ABSN) programs at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing.

The decision to remove the GRE requirement aligns with the School of Nursing’s commitment to creating an inclusive and accessible learning environment that welcomes diverse applicants from various backgrounds and experiences. As such, the School of Nursing has shifted its focus to a holistic review of the applicant’s information rather than focusing on only one factor.  

“The School of Nursing remains dedicated to our mission of fostering excellence in education and research while promoting equal opportunities for all,” said Christine E. Kasper, PhD, FACSM, FAAN, dean and professor. “We look forward to receiving applications from prospective students passionate about their fields of study who wish to contribute to our academic community.”
