Pre-Nursing Requirements


After completion of high school or obtaining a General Educational Development (GED) certificate, eight specific prerequisite college courses must be completed from a Regionally Accredited College or University (National Accreditation is not accepted without approval) before beginning training at Covenant School of Nursing.

In order to transfer prerequisite courses into our program, they must be from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum grade of "C". To qualify to apply, you must have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher in the required prerequisite courses. CLEP credit is accepted in English I, English II, Chemistry, and Human Growth and Development only. Dual Credit, AP, or CLEP is accepted for the applicable courses if the grade meets school requirements.
