Nursing Plan of Study

It is strongly recommended that all science courses be completed prior to the beginning of the nursing program. To be considered for admission to the program, students must have and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all required general education and nursing support courses. Successful completion of the nursing program requires a grade of C in all courses related to the Associate in Applied Science in Nursing. A student cannot be admitted to the program with a D in any required course.
