Pre-Nursing CNA Requirement

Pre-nursing students applying for the BSN program in January 2022 are required to have certification as a nursing assistant. If you do not yet have this certification, the BSN program strongly encourages you to enroll in a Nurse Aide course that can be completed over Summer semester to alleviate scheduling and workload conflicts with our prerequisites during Fall Semester.
