This section of the application allows you to upload a document that contains information that certain schools wants to review. Information could include your CV/Resume, RN License, Goal Statement, Residency Information, Official Test Scores or any other school-specific requirements. Since not all schools require this information, it is marked as an optional area of the NursingCAS application. In order to determine if a program you are applying to requires that you upload item(s) in this section visit the participating nursing programs page (https://portal.nursingcas.org/applicants12/index.cgi?rm=participating_nursing_programs). This page provides a direct link to all participating programs so you can access school-specific information in order to determine if you should upload any information into this section
The option to upload a document is only available PRIOR to e-submitting your application.
