Description of Program
Students, with fewer than 60 credits in transfer, who are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from La Salle’s School of Nursing, will initially be accepted into the Pre-Nursing (PNUR) Program. Upon successful completion of a minimum of 60 credits at La Salle in the proscribed courses, students with a 3.0 cumulative academic index are eligible for consideration for the bachelor’s program in the School of Nursing. Students in the PNUR program will be required to complete the Powers and Patterns of Meaning requirements along with eight specific courses in the Frameworks of Scientific Understanding as noted below. Students must maintain grades of “B” or better in each of the five Natural Sciences and “C” or better in the Social Sciences. Only one course in the Natural Sciences may be repeated to attain a better grade.
