Requirements

Requirement for nursing programs vary depending on the program. The prerequisite courses listed below are underlined for the Rush University Generalist Entry Masters (GEM) program. This program has a small number of requirements and is therefore compatible with most majors at Monmouth College. Other courses listed are typically required by other generalist entry masters programs or accelerated BSN programs.

There is quite a bit of flexibility in the course requirements for Pre-Nursing; those students interested in nursing as a career should speak to a Pre-Health advisor for advice on scheduling the prerequisite classes in combination with their intended major.
