Department of Nursing and Allied Health, COVID-19 Nursing Admissions UPDATE

I want to thank all students who have been emailing DONAH. Please continue to check the following links for updated campus information:

  • The Nursing Building & Offices are closed to students and visitors.

   • Our clerical staff will be answering DONAH emails.

• Due to the current COVID 19 circumstances, and closure of the campus to students and visitors until further    notice, to include testing, the Nursing Admission & Standards Committee met and voted to waiver the HESI A2 for ranking purposes for FALL 2020 Applicants only.

   • TSI requirement is a Texas State mandate.

• TSI is a requirement for graduation and if students do not pass the exams they will be required to complete the   remedial classes and or test out till they pass the TSI requirements, in order to graduate.

--- DONAH is aware of the current limited ability to Test at our Testing Center.  We therefore are extending the    TSI requirement to July 13th.

• Faculty are working on moving courses to online format and have held Virtual meetings for preparation.

     • Currently under review, due to Campus Extended Spring Break:

o For Fall 2020 applicants -- Orientation may need to be conducted virtually or offered during Summer June/July Time frame. Specific Date -TBA

o Pre-Admission mandatory sessions for Spring 2021 Applicants -- it will be scheduled  during Summer June/July Time frame. Specific Date – TBA

  If you have any questions, please continue to email DONAH, and we will answer as soon as possible.

  Thank you to all for keeping us up to date with where you are in the TSI process.

  Remember for all Fall 2020 applicants, you still need to complete all HEP B series vaccines before the start of   Fall 2020 classes in August.


Dr. Susan Ramnarine-Singh, Nursing Programs Director
