Liberal Arts and Sciences Program: Path to Nursing Sequence
This sequence is provided for those students who (1) apply too late in the year for admission to the nursing curriculum, (2) have not met the prerequisites for admission, or (3) prefer to pursue the nursing curriculum on a part-time or reduced course load basis.
Eventual acceptance in the nursing curriculum is competitive and would be on a space-available basis and conditional upon successful completion of the Liberal Arts and Sciences sequence of courses (minimum C in every course and a minimum overall GPA of 2.5), and written notification to Admissions during December advising them of the desire to be considered in the following Fall Semester. A two-year, four-semester sequence of professional nursing courses, plus any other requirements in the A.A.S. Nursing degree program that were not taken during the Liberal Arts and Sciences year would follow. If a student has not completed high school chemistry or the equivalent, this requirement must be met successfully prior to enrolling in the Nursing Program.
