Nursing: Pre-Licensure (B.S.N.)

Overview

Nursing Students pose together in white lab coats Trinity Washington University’s pre-licensure B.S.N. program combines the academic structure and clinical preparation necessary for a career in nursing. Our students focus initially on liberal arts courses that provide a framework for their chosen major in nursing. The rigorous academic coursework in the nursing program then lays the foundation for a progressive mastery of the knowledge, skills, values, ethics and abilities required of a professional nurse. Toward the end of the program, students will have ample opportunities to experience firsthand the rewards of nursing in closely supervised clinical settings.

Pre-licensure students complete the general education core curriculum in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as their pre-nursing requirements before applying for formal acceptance into the nursing program in the School of Nursing and Health Professions. Requirements for admission include completion of the College of Arts and Sciences core curriculum and pre-nursing courses with a grade of “C” or higher, an overall G.P.A. of at least 2.5 and a satisfactory score on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (T.E.A.S.).
