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.
Most pre-nursing students will complete the B.S. Degree in Public Health with a specialization in Pre-Nursing in Public Health. The specialization also prepares students to assume key roles within Public Health agencies as Health promotion specialists/prevention specialists. With a comprehensive background in pupulation-based health, graduating students can make immediate contributions to the health of the public.
Pre-requisites for admission to nursing school that meet General Education Requirements for Pre-Nursing specialization: SOC 101 or 107 or 205; PSY 101; CHEM 111 and CHEM 111LAB; BIOL 201.
