Master's Admission Requirements

Prerequisites for all Students Entering the MS Program

  • Basic Health Assessment (NURS 310 or 300 level or higher course) and Basic Statistics (3 credits). If either of these courses was taken more than five years ago, an advisor will discuss the possi­bility of taking a refresher course to update your skills. It is up to you to determine whether you feel competent to enroll in advanced courses that require an under­standing of basic concepts in these areas.
