Recommended Degree Pathway for Nursing

The recommended degree path outlines a sample course plan towards graduating in four years that focuses not only on nursing major requirements, but also on General Education and Elective courses that would be valuable for you as a nursing major. It also completes all General Education requirements by the end of the fourth semester.

The path suggests taking courses in specific semesters, but there may be semesters when a course is not offered. Consult your advisor for your official degree planning. This degree path is based on the 2011-2012 university catalog. Please click here for the catalog 2009-2010.

Please be advised that in order to graduate in four years individuals must successfully complete, on average, a minimum of 15 credit hours per semester. Also, 15 credits must be in courses numbered above 2999.

* Must be admitted to the Nursing Program immediately after the second year.
