Overview

The course of study is a 72-credit hour program, which includes classroom and laboratory instruction on campus, as well as supervised clinical experience at affiliating health agencies.

Because there are more students applying for nursing courses than it is possible to enroll, a Nurse Science Admissions Committee selects students for the program. Two classes are admitted to the nursing program each academic year. A retention grade point average of at least 2.5 on college work completed is necessary in order to be considered for the nursing courses. High school transcripts and/or GED (General Equivalency Diploma) scores are evaluated if no college work has been completed.

All required documents must be in the nursing office by dates published for the fall and spring semesters. It is possible to complete the nursing courses in four semesters following a semester of general education coursework. However, if the student has other responsibilities such as family or job, he or she may elect to enroll in general education and related courses before seeking admission to the nursing courses. After admission into the nursing program, the courses must be taken sequentially as listed. All students considering entrance into the nursing program are urged to seek advisement from the Health Sciences Academic Advisor in the Nurse Science Department.
