(Page 72 of the Program Guide provides a detailed curriculum guide for your four years at Waynesburg University).
Students interested in a career in professional nursing may complete the course requirements for a baccalaureate degree in four academic years. Students admitted to the University enter the freshman year as “Exploring Nursing” students and are admitted as sophomores into the Department of Nursing as nursing majors when all prerequisites have been met. All students interested in the professional nursing program at Waynesburg University will have a personal interview in the Department of Nursing.
First year students should follow the recommended sequence of required courses for the nursing major. Each student desiring a nursing career is assigned an academic advisor, who is a member of the nursing faculty, for guidance and consultation regarding academic progression.
The undergraduate nursing program offers a curriculum sequence for students wishing to pursue a career in professional nursing. It is recommended that students interested in pursuing a BSN degree successfully complete, as a part of their secondary school education, a minimum of 4 units of English, 3 units of social studies, 2 units of mathematics, including algebra, and 2 units of science with related laboratories.
Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher in the nursing major in order to progress to the junior and senior years of the nursing curriculum. Students must satisfy all clinical prerequisites prior to enrollment in clinical courses.
