NursingCAS Configuration Manager
Help Guide

The Configuration Manager Help Guide is designed to help you navigate through the NursingCAS Configuration Portal, which is the tool you will use to set up your programs on your NursingCAS application and configure your program requirements, settings and branding.

The guide is broken out into two separate sections, the first section provides you with user tips, best practices and examples of completed program configuration on the NursingCAS application. The second section of the guide provides you with detailed instructions on the step by step process of how to add a program and set up the configurations.

Please read each section carefully before completing your program set up.

Part I

Applicant Experience Overview

Before setting up your program-level configurations, it’s important to review the core NursingCAS application to determine what questions are being asked in the general portion of the application, as well as what optional questions are included. You may wish to instruct applicants to complete the optional questions to meet your program needs.

App-Main

The application is divided in to four sections (click links below to view questions asked in each section):

The Personal Information, Academic History, and Supporting Information sections contain data elements and questions common among participating programs.

Your program is able to collect additional information from applicants as well as provide applicants detailed information about your program and school. Your individual program requirements and your program homepage will be available in the Program Materials section of the application.

Information your program collects in the Program Materials section of the application is available in the Applicant’s Profile in WebAdMIT and can be included in Lists, Reports and Exports. It is also important to note that the information your program collects in the Program Materials section of the application is only available to your program.

Best Practices

Before you begin your program setup it’s important to think about how you can fully take advantage of the customizable options on the application. Review the Transcript and Coursework Verification options carefully in order to make an informed selection. Please review the below recommendations.

Program Homepage

Your program homepage is the most important part of the Program Materials section that the applicant will view. It is the first page they will see when they click on your school and program name in the Program Materials section and it will be their first look at your program branding. Applicants will also be able to view the other required information of the Program Materials section that you have enabled, including: Questions, Documents, Evaluations, and Prerequisites.

Branding (required)

Your branding image will not only appear on your homepage, but on any other sections you have enabled. This image should give applicants a strong understanding of your school and program. Incorporating an action image related to your program, or including an image with your school logo are recommended. Remember, this is the only section of the NURSINGCAS application where applicants will view your specific program’s branding – make it count!

Tip: Follow the Branding Guidelines available in the Configuration Portal – this will help you upload an image that’s the correct size. Images should be 270px (tall) x 900px (wide) with a file size of 250kb or less and .jpeg, .tiff, or .png file.

Program Homepage Text (required)

Similar to the applicant’s first look at your program branding, it will also be their first look at your program and school specific information on the NursingCAS application. In this section you should include important details about your program, school, requirements and instructions on how to be a successful applicant to your program.

You should include information for the following: previously earned degrees required, GPA requirements, test score requirements, needed experience, state restrictions and if applicable, information on a supplemental application fee and supplemental application.

Tip: It is helpful to list your school program’s website, however you should not solely direct applicants to your school website for more information. All of the information included on your website, should be included in the homepage text as well. This will make it easier for applicants to research your program information.

Tip: Save your information every fifteen minutes to prevent the system from timing out on you.

Evaluations (optional)

In this section you will be able to collect program-specific evaluations (Letters of Reference) from applicants. You will choose the Minimum Required and Maximum Accepted evaluations. In these fields, you may choose any number between 0 and 10.

You will also select whether or not you want to require applicants to complete the minimum number you set in order to complete the application (yes/no). If you select Yes, your applicants’ files will not become complete and will not be verified by our staff until the minimum number of evaluations you selected are completed by the applicants’ evaluators. If you select No, the applicants’ files will be completed once their transcripts and payments are received, regardless of whether or not their evaluations are completed.

Tip: No is the more flexible choice. If you select No, you will still receive complete applications even if the evaluations are still pending, and you can choose whether or not to consider the applicants with pending evaluations.

evaluations-prog-config

Questions (optional)

In the Questions section for your Program Materials, you can ask applicants school or program-specific questions and any questions not already included in the general portion of the application. Here you can ask applicants essay questions, such as why they are interested in this profession and/or why they’re interested in your specific program. You can also asked school specific questions to determine if they’ve previously attended your institution and if so, have a student ID number. You have the option of making these questions optional or required.

Tip: Review your current school application and/or supplemental application to help you determine which questions you need to ask applicants in this section of the application.

Tip: Ask questions as a reminder to applicants to complete an otherwise optional section of the application. Such as, “We require that you provide your SSN.  Have you entered that in the Supporting Information section of the application?”

Tip:  Save your information every fifteen minutes to prevent the system from timing out on you.

Examples:

questions-prog-config

 

Questions example

Documents (optional)

In this section you can instruct applicants to upload additional types of program-specific documents not collected on the main application. In the Documents Instruction section, be sure to include information on specific documents needed. For example, if you would like an applicant to upload a personal statement, include instructions on the personal statement essay topic.

Documents that can be uploaded include:

  • Certification
  • Course Catalog Description
  • CV/Resume
  • Health Records
  • High School Transcript
  • License
  • Military Papers
  • Personal Statement
  • Research/Publication
  • Shadowing/Healthcare Experience
  • Test Score Report
  • Writing Sample
  • Other

Tip: If you have a document that is program specific and requires a form be completed and/or signed, you can use the instructions section to link to the document on your school’s Website, and advise applicants to download the form, complete it, and upload it as an “Other” document type for example.

documents-prog-config

Prerequisites (optional)

In this section you will be able to list the prerequisite courses and the required credits and grade required for entry to your program. Applicants will self-identify which courses they feel meet your prerequisite coursework requirements.

Tip: The prerequisite description fields have a max of 250 characters for the best display on the application. You may need to shorten the descriptions if cutting and pasting from an existing website.

Part II

Configuration Overview

You will use the Configuration Manager to create the programs you want displayed on the application, set up your program homepage, and choose none or all of the additional information options available. Below are four types of additional information your programs can collect from applicants in the Program Materials section of the application:

  • Answers to Questions
  • Prerequisites
  • Documents
  • Evaluations

Accessing Your Organization in the Configuration Manager

Sign-in through WebAdMIT

Log into WebAdMIT and enter your username and password.

Program Status

There are four different statuses your program could be in: draft, ready for review, approved, and closed.

Draft status means that this is a new program that you are able to fully edit. This program has not been sent to the CAS administrator for approval and is not available to applicants to select (even if the open date has passed).

Ready for Review status means that you have submitted the program for review and approval by the CAS administrator. It is currently locked and you are not able to make changes.

Approved status means that the program has been submitted to the CAS administrator and has been approved. This is an active program meaning it is either live on the application, or will open on the program start date. If the program has not yet opened, applicants will be able to view as a future program on the Program Selection page of the application. Only the program deadline date, homepage and branding can be edited in this status.

Closed status means that the program was live on the application, but since the deadline date has passed, it is no longer available to applicants. The program deadline date, homepage and branding can be edited by admissions users.

If you have any questions about setting up your program, please contact Ann Donnelly at (617) 612-2064 or .
