Registered Nursing Program Requirements

Pre-application requirements: Must be completed before March 1st. 

Prerequisite courses:

Co-requisite courses:

All prerequisite and co-requisite courses must be completed with a minimum grade of “C”. If a prerequisite course is not completed by the application deadline, a grade of “C” will be used when figuring the prerequisite GPA. All prerequisites must be completed before the RN program begins in August. Co-requisite courses must be completed by the end of the RN year.

*Associate degrees require a qualitative literacy course i.e. MATH 1030 or higher; however, students transferring to a BSN or higher nursing program may need MATH 1040.

Suggested courses: Highly recommended but not required.

Points will be given if the co-requisite and suggested courses are completed with a minimum grade of a “B-” by the application deadline.

Nursing GPA: Grades from all nursing-specific courses (as required for a LPN program from an accredited program) will be used to determine the nursing GPA. If any student is enrolled in, but has not completed a required LPN course by the application deadline, a “B-” (2.7) grade will be used to determine the nursing GPA. Students with lower than a B- in one or more nursing course must show at least part-time (24 hrs./week) experience working as an LPN for a minimum of one year to qualify for the RN program.

GE requirements:

To earn an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree, which is required to take the NCLEX-RN exam, the above GE requirements must be completed by the end of the RN year. We follow the Snow College grade requirement for the GE courses. Please meet with a Snow College Academic Advisor to make sure all requirements for an ASN degree will be met.
