The pre-nursing track is a 12-13 semester credit hour block of classes. Students enrolled in the Pre-Nursing program have the opportunity to earn guaranteed admission into the Carolinas College School of Nursing.
To be eligible for guaranteed admission, students must complete the coursework at Carolinas College within three consecutive terms of starting the program and earn a minimum 3.25 GPA for these courses. Only the grades earned on the first attempt at these courses will be considered in calculating the GPA eligibility for guaranteed admission.
Those who earn guaranteed admission will be conditionally admitted to the Nursing program as space becomes available. The coursework includes:
- Anatomy and Physiology I (BIO 101)
- Anatomy and Physiology II (BIO 102)
- Medical Terminology (HEA 102 or NUR 100)
- College Math (MAT 101)
Those who do not earn guaranteed admission may change to the general studies track to complete the associate degree.
