Abstract

Holistic review in admissions considers an applicant's background and experience in combination with academic achievement. In order to evaluate baccalaureate nursing school applicants more holistically, a school of nursing added group interviews as part of the admissions process. The school's Admission and Progression Committee consulted with other schools, developed interview questions, and implemented a strategy to interview applicants. Results of this process were high levels of candidate and faculty satisfaction and enrollment of a diverse cohort of students with a high preadmission grade point average. Areas for improvement and further research are discussed.
