The pre-nursing in public health specialization within the public health major prepares students to meet entrance requirements to bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) programs throughout Washington. Armed with leading-edge scientific knowledge and liberal arts content, combined with an extensive public health internship, the pre-public health nursing specialization allows future professionals to enter nursing school with a solid background in public health theory and practice. CWU does not offer a degree program in nursing, but offers all prerequisite courses necessary for successful admission to professional nursing programs available across Washington.

Pre-Professional Programs Information


These programs are planned for two groups of students-those who want one or two years of college work prior to entering an occupation, and those who want to do pre-professional work for one, two, three, or four years before entering a professional school, university, or college.

The programs described are not to be considered unalterable. They represent patterns that generally agree with the requirements of many professional schools. Since there are many variations in the requirements of the professional schools, students should, after consulting the CWU catalog, select courses required by the institution from which they expect to earn a degree.

The following pre-professional programs are offered: pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-dietetics, pre-engineering, pre-law, pre-medical technology, pre-medicine, pre-nursing in public health, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary.
