NursingCAS, offered by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is a centralized application service for nursing. The main goal of NursingCAS is to maximize nursing schools' capacity and fill all of their available seats for each admissions cycle by providing prospective nursing students with information about schools' admission requirements and availability, and by providing nursing schools with a platform to manage applicants and application reviews. Nearly 300 nursing schools are part of NursingCAS. Prospective students who use NursingCAS also have the benefit of easily applying to nursing programs through one online application and one set of transcripts.
