The pre-nursing program provides the first two years of general education, prerequisites, and supporting courses needed for the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program option. These two years are to help prepare you for the courses that lead to acquiring the BSN degree.
If you are a first-year student desiring to apply to the Traditional BSN option, you 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.
If you are transferring from another institution for the Traditional BSN option, and do not meet admissions requirements, you can enroll in the pre-nursing program in order to meet requirements. The pre-nursing program can be completed in less than two years if you decide to take courses in the summer.
