About the Program

The Pre-Nursing certificate provides a structured curriculum for those students seeking to qualify for nursing without testing. The completion of all eight courses in the curriculum with a minimum grade point average of 2.75 on these 8 courses, no grade lower than a “C” and no more than one repeat per course at any post-secondary institution will enable the student to secure a place on the qualified list for nursing. In addition, the courses in this certificate serve as a background for the study of either practical nursing or associate degree nursing.

General education courses for students in the Health Sciences and Nursing Pre-Programs Certificates are available for students in classrooms and laboratories on both the Airport and Beltline Campuses. Allied Health Science courses with a laboratory component are taught only on the Airport Campus in the Health Sciences Building and Lexington Hall. There are no required externships/internships for this program.
