Integrated Nursing Pathway Prerequisites

The prerequisites (required courses taken prior to the program) are listed below. These courses cannot be over 10 years old at the time of application. For example, if applying in 2014, a course that was taken in 2003 would be too old. All prerequisite courses must be in progress or completed by the time of application to the program. A grade of C or higher is required for a prerequisite to be satisfied. The prerequisites may be taken in any order, however it is suggested that:

  • algebra be taken prior to chemistry;

  • biology and chemistry not be taken in the same semester, in the summer, or online;

  • prerequisites should be finished the semester of application. The exception is one three-credit course which may be taken during the summer after application. Permission from the director of Health Sciences is required in advance. The class cannot be used to increase GPA. If accepted and the summer class grade lowers the GPA below 3.0, offer of acceptance will be rescinded; and

  • if an art class is taken, it cannot be performance based.
