Preference will be given based on number of prerequisite courses completed at the time of application. Minimum grade for prerequisite courses is a "C". Please note, meeting this minimum requirement does not guarantee admission to the program. There is no time limit for taking the prerequisite courses, however you will be held accountable for the content. The accelerated nursing curriculum builds upon the prerequisite courses and requirements. For example, you must understand pathophysiology of disease processes to care for patients with a specific disease.
