Admission Requirements


Prelicensure students must complete the formal application process to be considered for admission to the professional nursing curriculum. Admission to the professional nursing program is highly competitive. Availability of space in nursing courses, including clinical settings, will limit the number of admissions possible each semester.

Selection criteria for admission to the professional nursing program include ALL of the following:

  1. A cumulative grade point average of a 3.0 minimum.
  2. A cumulative grade point average of a 3.0 minimum in the four prerequisite science courses (CHEM 1510 and 1520; CHEM 1530 and 1540; BIOS 1910 and 2400).
  3. One of the required science courses may be repeated only one time to apply for admission to the professional nursing program. For the course repeated, both grades will be included in the admission consideration.
  4. All other prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.0) or above.

Professional Curriculum Requirements (125 credit hours)


The sequencing of the Professional Nursing curriculum is critical. Students must complete designated course requirements for each level in the nursing program before progressing to the next level. To remain in good standing within the Professional Nursing curriculum, students must achieve a grade of “C” or better in all nursing courses and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above. No nursing courses may be repeated without review and approval by the Bronson School of Nursing Student Affairs Committee. Further, students may only repeat such courses once following the initial enrollment.
