The pre-nursing program provides the first two years of liberal arts and sciences, prerequisites, and supporting courses needed for the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program option. These two years serve to establish a solid foundation for Nursing courses leading to a BSN.
If a first-year student who wish to apply to the Traditional BSN option, will have to complete all prerequisite and distribution courses through the pre-nursing program prior to applying for admission to the upper division BSN program.
Students transferring from another institution for the Traditional BSN option, and do not meet admissions requirements, can enroll in the pre-nursing program in order to complete any outside pre-requisites. The pre-nursing program can be completed in less than two years if courses are taken in the summer.
