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).

Prerequisite courses 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. The most recent prerequisite grade will be used to calculate the prerequisite GPA. 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. If you have questions in regards to a prerequisite course that you have taken please contact our office. The Admissions and Recruitment offices are available by appointment to applicants for academic guidance during the pre-nursing phase of completing these required courses.

To make an appointment, please call and ask for the Admissions Officer at 806-725-8902 or Recruiter at 806-725-8949
