Students pursuing a BSN degree that leads to nursing licensure complete two years of course work in the pre-professional division of the College of Nursing. Following completion of prerequisite courses, the student applies for admission to the upper division. Students take nursing courses on the Health Science Campus. 120 semester credit hours are required for graduation.
Admission to the upper division professional nursing program is competitive and based on cumulative GPA. A minimum higher education GPA of 3.0 is required to apply. Prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher. Because the number of seats available for starting upper division study each semester is limited; students are encouraged to maintain a cumulative GPA above 3.0.
Nursing advisors will assist students to determine semester for application to the major. Prerequisite courses must be completed prior to beginning nursing major. Application deadlines are subject to change: please check with nursing advisors.
Application to the major will include the higher education cumulative GPA without benefit of grade deletion. This means that a GPA will include the first grade earned for the course as well as the grade earned for a repeated course. Grades from all college courses determine GPA.
Below is a sample plan of study. Consult your degree audit for your program requirements.
