Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Traditional Program

Students in this category are presumed to be entering professional nursing for the first time.  They are admitted through University Undergraduate Admissions and complete a pre-professional nursing program offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
 
Applicants are eligible to apply to the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program if they are entering professional nursing for the first time and have completed a minimum of 30 semester credits and all prerequisites (see below). Applicants must complete all prerequisite courses with a grade of “C” or better in each course and must have a minimum 2.5 grade point average in prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission consideration. A minimum grade point average of 2.5 is also required in prerequisite science courses. If any professional nursing courses have been taken, grades earned in those courses will be taken into account. Admission to the program is competitive; completion of prerequisites with minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
